Methi Khakra recipe


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup chopped fenugreek/methi leaves or kasuri methi(dried leaves)
  • 2 teaspoons carom/ajwain seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon chilli powder
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 tablespoon oil more for making the khakra
  • Salt to taste

Cooking Instructions

Mix all the ingredients and knead by adding little water at a time, till it becomes stiff dough. Keep aside covered for 15 minutes

Divide the dough into 20 portions/balls. Roll out the each ball into very thin circles and arrange them on a paper towel separately.

Heat the griddle in medium high heat. Add one rolled out portion of the dough, add 1 teaspoon of oil and keep pressing and turning it on

the griddle not allowing it to puff. Continue this pressing and turning for a few minutes. Turn over and continue the press and turn

method on medium heat until the rounds become crisp. Now the crisp rounds called khakra’s are ready.

Continue the same with the other rolled out portions and stack them one on top of the other and store in an air tight container.

Enjoy them as a snack or as desired

Note: The pressing can be done with a wooden press as shown in the picture or a cotton cloth or something else in your kitchen that will work as a press.
