Zunka Bhakri

Zunka Bhakri is a typical maharastrian  recipe ....
Zunka is a spicy gravy made using besan, & Bhakri can be made using jowar, bajra, or rice flour or a combination of these. Zunka Bhakar is a farmer’s meal.  Last year we had visited to sinhagad ,pune. The fort climbing and the cool weather made us terribly hungry. On the fort top, there was a family who were selling zunka-bhakar. They were making fresh hot bhakris in front of us and we would ask for more after the first one got over. Now, bhakris are really very filling, they tasted so good with the zunka that we kept on eating more. She served chilled buttermilk to end a perfect meal. That was one satisfying meal that I would never forget in my entire life.
This was the first time I made zunka and bhakri.

 Learn how to make/prepare Zunka  by following this easy recipe .

3 tbsp  gram flour
