Well I am back to blogging, slowly though. 🙂
Started my day today with a kanyachi bhakri, which is one of my favorite sunday breakfast/brunch dish.
Kaano means onion in konkani. Bhakri is a kind of roti prepared wholly with hand. It’s not rolled like a chapati, but is placed and layered on the tawa with hand.
1 medium onion (kaano)
1 vaati besan (indian measurement cup )
1/2 vaati rawa
2 green chillies or 1 tea spn chilli powder
few sprigs of coriander leaves or 1/2 tea spn coriander powder
1/4 tea spn turmeric powder
4 table spn freshly grated coconut (optional)
oil for shallow frying
salt to taste
Chop onions, coriander and green chillies finely.
Mix together in a bowl. Add the besan, rawa, spice powders and salt to taste. Mix well WITHOUT adding water. Adjust spices to taste.
I didn’t add coconut to this, but my mom does and it taste absolutely awesome 🙂
Now add approx 1/2 cup of water to this and form a coarse & sticky batter. Do not make this mixture very watery as we need to place this batter on the tawa by hand.
Take a non-stick tawa and put a tea spoon of oil on it. Keep on low flame. Take a big round of the batter, place it at the center of the tawa.
Dip your fingers in water and lightly pat the batter spreading it on the tawa like a chapati. Keep patting lightly, till the batter spreads on the tawa.
Serve with tomato sauce and garam garam chai 🙂
Enjoy at breakfast, brunch or evening snack 🙂
