Fenugreek (Methi) Khakra

My sister-in-law brought khakra for me specially from Gujarat.  And that was the first time i ate that crispy, somewhat spicy khakra. That was a plain basic khakra without adding any other material. I loved it so much that i decided to give it a try at home. When i made it first time they become so much soft and all my hard work got wasted. Then I read lot of online stuff and made again and guess what ! Second time it was just wow.  Then i tried different types by adding fenugreek, masala etc.  Below is the recipe for Gujarati Khakra. Experience the special taste by making Gujarati style Khakra at home.

I am an SEO expert by profession. That is one side of the coin. The other side is my enduring passion for cooking, particularly Indian cuisine in all its glorious splendour. I revel in traditional and more modernistic experimental cooking with an Indian slant. The permutations are endless. I could spend my whole life and still find something new in Indian cooking. I find time from my profession and a busy family life to try out dishes, dream up combos and share them with you. Food is one of the pleasures of life that can be enjoyed at any age and tastes change according to age so I tailor recipes to suit all preferences.
