Bhakri (Rice Flat Bread)

konkani rice bhakri
When we talk of Indian flatbreads, the popular Tanduri Naan or Roti comes to our mind. Today's Konkani flatbread recipe is not made of wheat flour, but of cooked rice. This Bhakri recipe is similar to the unleavened flatbread made of Rice flour and/or Jowar flour, quite popular in Maharashtra.

Cooked Rice - 1 cup
Rice flour - about 2 cups

How to cook Rice Bhakri:
  • Grind cooked rice in the mixer adding little water. Add salt, rice flour and knead into a soft dough. Add more rice flour if required. You can also use leftover rice for this Bhakri recipe.
  • Make round balls. Roll each ball like chapati in between 2 food wrap sheets. While rolling each bhakri, apply oil to the plastic to avoid sticking.
  • Traditionally, banana leaf is used to roll this bhakri. Instead of rolling pin, you can spread the dough ball with hands.
  • Roast bhakri on a tawa/griddle drizzling little oil. Serve Bhakri with a chutney or a spicy curry of your choice.
