Bhakri Churma/Phodnichi Bhakri.

I tried this dish for the very first time and loved it….as I had mentioned in an earlier post…I have been advised to stay away from gluten….so was missing one of my favourite breakfast dish…Bread Upma….and had a jowar bhakri left over from yesterday’s dinner…so gave it a try.

It’s easy and quick to make and tastes delicious.Same reipe can be used to make phodnichi poli,using chapati instead of bhakri…

I have used jowar bhakri,any other bhakri can also be used…bajri,nachni,rice…


2 leftover Jowar Bhakris,crumbled into small pieces.

1 tbsp Peanuts.

1 tbsp Oil.

1/4 tsp Asafoetida.

1/4 tsp Mustard Seeds.

5 Curry Leaves.

2 Green Chillies chopped.

1 Onion chopped.

2 Garlic cloves crushed.

1/4 tsp Haldi powder.

1 tsp Sugar.

Salt to raste.

juice of 1/2 Lemon.

2 tbsp Coriander Leaves chopped.

2 tbsp Sev for garnishing.


Crumble the leftover bhakri into small pieces.Keep aside.

Heat oil in a kadhai.Add peanuts and stir fry till crisp,now add mustard seeds,asafoetida,curry leaves,garlic and chopped chillies.Saute for a minute.

Add onions and haldi powder,saute well.

Add crumbled bhakri,salt and sugar.Sprinkle some water,mix well.Cover and cook for 5 minutes.

Switch off the gas and add lemon juice,mix well.Serve hot garnished with sev and chopped corriander leaves.

Tip-This is a basic receipe,various things can be added to this dish to make different versions.Diced potatoes,soaked moong dal(with skin),green peas,sprouted moong,grated carrots,boiled corn kernels, can also be added to turn this dish into a complete meal.

Happy Cooking!!!
