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 in air tight container for couple of weeks at least. My friends were surprised at how I could make this regional dish so easily at home and in fact wanted me to share this recipe with them. I’m sure you too are looking forward to delicious breakfasts in next coming festive days, and you must try these Khakras. Just make them yourself with this simple-to-follow Gujarati Khakra Recipe and enjoy the day.
