Bhakarwadi - Maharashtrian Crispy Fried Rolls

Bhakarwadi, this spicy Maharashtrian snack is a traditional snacks which can be stored for many days and can be enjoyed thoroughly for snacks as much as like South Indian savoury snacks like murukkus, thattais etc. This crispy fried rolls is prepared with spicy tangy mixture of poppyseeds, sesame seeds, dry coconut along with few more spice powders. Actually this is the first time am making bhakarwadis at home, this crispy snacks was in my to do list since a long, for some reason i couldnt able to make these dangerously addictive fried rolls earlier. Finally i made them this weekend at home, this Indian pinwheels are very addictive and one cant just stop munching them.Even its my first trial, i should say that i have completely fallen in love with this super crispy fried rolls. Needless to say this Bhakarwadis rocks, we loved it to the core.

These bhakarwadis are prepared specially for this month's Indian Cooking Challenge,a monthly event where we cook dishes from various regions of India.For this month's challenge, Srivalli suggested us this popular and very famous Maharashtrian Bhakarwadis.Bhakarwadis can be prepared by two methods, one method is to steam the rolled dough, then sliced and deep fried while the second one is once rolled ,slice it and deep fried directly.Even baked version of bhakarwadi exists in case if you dont want to deep fry these crispy rolls.I opted for the second one, they came out extremely crispy and dangerously addictive. Thanks Valli for pulling me to making these beauties.

lovely bhakarwadis. I love that yours do not appear burnt. Most ready made ones are fried till the filling appears dark brown.
