Bhakri is a round, flat bread that is coarser in texture than the regular roti. It is also a mainstay of Maharashtrian cuisine. It can be prepared using a variety of flours, including wheat, jowar, bajra, and finger millet; the Konkan region even prefers rice flour. Bhakri is also a popular food item in Gujarat.

- Sorghum flour (jowar) (1 cup)
