Gujarati Khakra

It is breakfast time, and while I was with some Gujarati friends, thought of making something special for them as well. What better than a Gujarati Khakra for breakfast? These hand-made crackers are made thin and crunchy by roasting over a tava. They can be served with dahi or achaar for a perfect taste, and I’m so much looking forward to have them today. Another great thing about Khakra’s is that you can store them [...]

Cumin, with its nutritive benefits, soothes the stomach and hence this drink is commonly used in summers to guard against excessive heat and as a digestive for heavy meals. We use other ingredients mixed in the drink to give nice flavour and aroma. For [...]
