Khakra is a popular flat bread from state of Gujarat, India which is served as a snack. I’m going to share the recipe for Methi masala khakra which has a subtle flavors from dried fenugreek leaves and spices.
I learnt all these Gujarati savories from my sister who lived in Ahmedabad, Gujarat for many years after her marriage. She’s a wonderful cook and learnt many dishes from her like Thepla, Farsi Puri etc. I think sisters are special in your life especially if you have an elder sister. I also have a special bond with my sister and love talking with her. I lose count of time when I’m talking to her. It is only when I end the call, I realize that I spent last hour talking to her :)..
