Methi Khakra

I love Gujarati food. The snacks that they make are varied and yummy. Khakra, fafda, dhokla and kachori are some of their popular ones. Khakra are made of various kinds. They can be used as a snack or for breakfast.They can be stored for a long time and ideal to carry during travelling.

The affair with khakra started long back at home. Children loved these when they were young and I always had a stack of these in my pantry. Methi , Jeera, Masala, Garlic, so many varieties were available in the bakery.

As we planned to make Gujarati dishes, I thought of trying my hand at Khakra.  Yes, they did turn out good and glad that I ventured into this one. Presenting to you all Gujarati’s popular snack Methi Khakra today.

  1. I simply love Khakras in all the possible flavours available. How perfectly you have made them dear. Nothing like a hot cup of tea and one of your methi Khakra. Yummmy.

  2. The Gujarati Khakra is a snack made from whole wheat flour that is served for breakfast, tea or even taken as a travel snack. It is wholesome as it is made from whole wheat flour and delicately flavoured with ingredients like fenugreek, turmeric and asafoetida.
