Recipe for Punjabi Masala Khakhra
Whole wheat flour (1 cup)
- Chickpea flour (1/2 cup)
- Cayenne pepper (1/2 teaspoon)
- Turmeric powder (1/4 teaspoon)
- Ajwain or carom seeds (1/2 teaspoon)
- Chaat masala (1 teaspoon)
- Kasoori methi (1/4 cup)
- Oil (1 teaspoon)
- Salt to taste
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and use adequate water and knead it properly to make moderately stiff dough.
- Leave the dough for 30 minutes.
- Take a 1 inch diameter ball of dough. Drop a little oil or a small amount of flour on the surface where you are going to roll the ball. Make a very thin disc of 6 inch in diameter. Remember the khakhra will be crispier if it is finely rolled.
- Heat the griddle and place the khakhra on it. When you notice bubbles all over khakhra, just flip it with a clean kitchen towel and press down the bubbles. Keep on rotating until it is done.
- When you see golden brown spots on both sides of khakhra, remove it from heat and let it cool completely. It will firm up perfectly once it is absolutely cool.
