Recipe
1
Start by preparing the Pithla. In a pan, heat 2 tablespoons of oil. Add 1 teaspoon of mustard seeds and let them splutter. Then add 1 teaspoon of cumin seeds, a pinch of asafoetida, and 2 finely chopped green chillies. Sauté for a few seconds.
2
Add 1 finely chopped onion and sauté until it turns golden brown. Add 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder and mix well.
3
In a bowl, mix 1 cup of gram flour (besan) with 2 cups of water to make a smooth paste. Add this paste to the pan and stir continuously to avoid lumps.
4
Add salt to taste and let it simmer on low heat for about 10-15 minutes until the Pithla thickens.
5
For the Bhakri, in a bowl, take 2 cups of jowar flour, add water gradually and knead into a soft dough.
6
Divide the dough into equal portions and roll each portion into a flat round shape.
7
Heat a tawa and cook each Bhakri on medium heat until it turns golden brown on both sides.
8
Serve the Pithla and Bhakri hot, garnished with chopped coriander leaves.
