Sweet Bhakri

Sweet Bhakri {in Gujarati we call this roti as bhakri} is a easy and an interesting flatbread that is made with leftover chaasini {sugar syrup} at home. This is my mother's recipe and I like this sweet bhakri to the full. I can have 2 at a time.

Leftover chaasini 1/2 to 3/4th cup {as per sweetness needed}
Whole Wheat Flour / Atta 1 cup
Ghee as needed- for making dough + for drizzling over the Bhakri.

In a bowl take atta. Add the chaasini and little ghee and start making a dough. If needed just give a touch up of water, but don't add too much water as we need a hard dough and not soft.

Now take a small ball size dough, and start  rolling to form a bhakri / roti taking some atta to dust while rolling. { This bhakri / roti is usually made in small size only as the hard dough makes it break at the sides easily}.

Once a small size bhakri / roti is made, place it onto the tawa and start to cook the bhakri.

As small brown spots are seen, flip it to other side, apply ghee this side and again flip it to other side and cook until done on both sides.

Transfer to a serving plate.

Serve as it is. It doesn't need any accompaniment as the sweetness itself is enough to enjoy it.
