Bhakarwadi, how to prepare bhakarwadi using wheat flour

Bhakarwadi is popular maharastrian cusine.  It is sweet and spicy tea time snack, prepared with various spices filled inside. You can pack it as snacks for kids, good time pass while traveling. First time I tasted haldiram bhakarwadi few years back & today I prepared it first time using wheat flour instead of maida. It really came very yummy with sweet, spicy, sour & crispy. The main part in bhakarwadi preparation is rolling the masala filled  chapathi tightly otherwise filled masala will come out while frying Bhakarwadi. Funnel seeds gives good flavour and taste, poppy seeds and sesame seeds gives nut taste to the bhakarwadi. Adding sugar is preferred as bhakarwadi is sweet and spicy.

3) Prepare dough by adding water and knead it well.

4) Grease oil on the dough and close the lid or moist cloth for 15 - 20 minutes. And start preparation for filling.

5) Take all the ingredients mentioned in filling in a mixer jar and grind it coarsely. Donot add water it must be like powder.

6) Now take half portion of dough, dust rolling base and rolling pin with wheat flour and roll it into round shape as we do for chapathi's.

7) Apply lemon juice

8) Spread the masala  on the lemon juice leaving the corners.

9) Grease the corners with lemon juice. 

10) Roll the chapathi very tightly, without leaving gaps.

11) Cut the rolls into pieces and press it, to get circular disc shape. I pressed bit hardly so shape is disturbed.

12) Take a kadai, add oil and heat it on low flames. Once oil is heat add the pieces and fry it on medium flame.

13)  Fry bhakarwadi's till it changes to golden brown color. Take it into plate and let cool and store it in air container.

Yummy bhakarwadi is ready to serve ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹.


◆ You can also use maida instead of wheat flour.

◆ Increase the quantity mentioned for filling, as it came for more than half dough for me.

◆ You can skip lemon juice and grease with oil (step - 7 & 9).

◆  I did not fried the filling items, as we are deep frying. 


● Adding lemon juice gives sour taste, and taste good.

● Roll the chapathi filled masala very tightly & do not press the pieces hardly ( as i did๐Ÿ˜‰) after cutting , otherwise you do not get good spiral rool shape.
