  1. Eventhough I'm only up to Kashmir with commenting, I had to jump when I saw the title of the post only because I just finished making these not 5 minutes ago to present for Uttarakhand and here you go presenting them and so least my chutney is different :) - but I didn't use plastic wrap to roll mine - just made sure the board was well floured.
    Love the beautiful color of the chutney

  2. My mouth is just watering here, that chutney is just breathtaking. Healthy and nutritious bajra roti.

  3. same pinch!!! I also made bajra ki roti!! your clicks are awesome!!

  4. i really appreciate people who make bhakri and especially when this is not part of their cuisine, this such a killer combination that it is actually one of my comfort foods, when i need some homey feeling i would settle for bhakri and lahsun ki chutney...very well made

  5. Bhakri and lasun chutney is a combination popular all along the west coast. Like you version of the cooked lasun chutney.

  6. That's so well made!.. We make this very often at home, minus the methi leaves..chutney looks so sinful!

  7. Well made rotis and very well presented.

  8. Very well made. Very earthy and healthy as well.

  16. Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few
    months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to
    stop hackers?
