Nachni bhakri recipe:

Take one cup nachni flour/ finger millet flour, add 2-3 tblsp wheat flour and salt to taste
Knead the flour with water, kneading is important so that no cracks form when you pat the bhakri
Once done kneading sprinkle some flour over the surface and pat the dough in circular patterns just like jowar bhakris
Lift it carefully and place on hot pan,spread water over upper surface and flip it
Cook on that side ,again flip it ,once it puffs up the roti s ready to serve !!
