Bhakri is a flat bread which is prepared in western and central India. When I bought Saffola oats, a free recipe booklet accompanied the pack. I found this recipe in the booklet. I prepared it with minor changes and it tasted wonderful. It is very crispy and very filling. I prepare it frequently for breakfast nowadays. This is a very healthy version and it goes well with any type of chutney or gravy.
I am a great fan of Nigella. When ever I feel dull, I watch Nigella’s cooking shows. It is really soothing. I love the way she talks and cooks. This is one of her recipes. I am always tempted to try these rolls but actually didn’t try because of beer used in this recipe. Nigella describes beer as the secret ingredient for this rolls. But I could never use it. So one day I searched the web for any substitutes. In one site, they asked to use sprite. I had a bottle of 7 Up. So I just used it instead of beer. The rolls came out so soft and spongy. They tasted great. I should thank Nigella for this wonderful recipe.

4. The dough must be thinner than the roti dough.
5. Cover and set it aside for 20minutes.
6. Slightly oil your hands and knead the dough.

I made this roti for breakfast and we enjoyed it with mango pickle. It was delicious. The preparation is very easy and it is a wholesome breakfast.
I just wanted to prepare a nutritious cutlet for yesterday’s evening snack. I usually bake my cutlets. Very afraid of deep frying them. Had some palak puree left from an earlier project, and had lots of green peas. So I decided on this cutlet. It was very yummy. We had it with tomato sauce. It had a crisp crust and a very soft interior. Hubby liked it a lot and the plate was emptied in less than 15 minutes. It is a very light snack.

Nowadays I have started using oats in my recipes. I am somewhat afraid of the regular oats porridge. So I just wanted to try out a different version. This was a filling breakfast. We enjoyed it a lot. Sending this to CWF-Oats hosted by Priya and started by Kiran.
