Dhebra is a traditional Gujarati snack, which is a spiced millet flat bread. Dhebras are either deep fried like pakodas or they are rolled into small tikkis and pan fried. I have tried the second variation here. Dhebras can be made in huge batches and taken as a travel snack and can be had as such or with any pickle of your choice.

  • Whole wheat flour - 1 cup
  • Bajra flour (millet flour) - 1/3 cup
  • Sour Curd - 1/2 cup
  • Jaggery - 1 Tbsp
  • Ginger-garlic paste - 2 Tsp
  • Cumin seeds powder - 1/2 Tsp
  • Turmeric powder - 1/4 Tsp
  • Red chilli powder - 1/4 Tsp
  • Salt - as needed
  • Kasoori Methi - 2 Tbsp (even finely chopped fresh fenugreek/methi leaves can be added)
  • Oil - 2 Tbsp
  • Oil - for pan fry

  1. Combine sour curd and jaggery and mix very well to avoid any lumps
  2. Add in all the spices and mix well. Keep aside
  3. Add 2 Tbsp of oil to the flour and mix well till oil is well incorporated into the flour
  4. Pour in the spiced curd mixture and make a soft dough without adding water
  5. Knead well and drizzle few drops of oil over the dough. Cover and allow it to rest for 20 minutes
  6. Divide them into small balls and roll into small thick rotis/tikkis
  7. Pan fry them on both sides with very little oil
  8. Enjoy the flavorful dhebras as such or with any pickle of your choice!
