Bajri chi Bhakri (Bajra Roti)

Another bhakri for Khaugiri. Bajra gives heat to your body so generally we eat this bhakri in winter season. In the childhood we used to say this bhakri as 'Cement Bhakri', because bajra flour looks like cement :).
Although absolutely simple to make, these Bhakris are delicious! I love to eat them with fresh white butter.

Bajra flour (Pearl Millet Flour) - 1 cup
Warm water
Salt - 1 tsp
Sesame seeds - 1 tea spoons

Take Bajra flour in a vessel and make a well in the middle. Add salt and warm water.
Knead nicely to make a soft dough. Make round balls out of this dough. On a flat surface, sprinkle little flour and sprinkle some sesame seeds on it. Pat the ball with your palm ( you can roll it like roti also). Use flour as required. Keep flattening the ball in circular motion to make round shape like roti. Don't make it too thin. Heat a griddle (tawa) . Lower the flame. Now place Bhakri on griddle in such a way that the lower portion ( with sesame seeds) of bhakri should be on griddle. Now spread little of water on upper side of bhakri. When water on bhakri dries completely turn it to cook from other side. Now remove from griddle and keep it on the direct flame. It will get puffed. It will need practice for puffed bhakri. Have it with Bhogi chi bhaaji and groundnut chutney. And with white butter… Wow Awesome...

I want to contribute this to Preeti's Festive Food.
