Thecha Jowar Bhakri Recipe Card


Some say Chinese cuisine is 400,000 years old going back to the Peking Man and his use of fire. Some other accounts of the history of Chinese cuisine takes the beginning to the Chinese stone age. However today Chinese cuisine enjoys the distinction of being the most popular in the world.
All this furore about Chinese food can make one wonder what is so special about this cuisine.  To put it in one word it is wholesome.  It has the characteristics of being nutritious, economical, balanced and delicious. It cannot be gainsaid that Chinese food is popular the world over and it can be adapted into our modern lifestyles as the strong link between diet and health of body, mind and spirit is epitomized in Chinese cookery. We all desire harmony in our lives and this works on the ancient Taoist principle of Yin and Yang in which balance and contrast are the key. Each Chinese dish reflects a balance of taste, texture, aroma and colour. Be it sweet, sour, pungent, hot, salty or spicy – all the six basic flavours are incorporated deftly in all Chinese dishes.

Ingredients for Thecha Jowar Bhakri Recipe

  • Pak Choy 8

  • Ginger 4 cups + for dusting

  • Oil 1 tablespoon

  • Coriander leaves chopped 2 cups

  • Peanuts 2 tablespoons

  • Garlic cloves chopped 8-10

  • Salt to taste

  • Ghee 2 tablespoons


Step 1

Heat half tablespoon oil in a non stick pan. Add green chillies and sauté till chillies turn golden brown. Remove and set aside.

In the same pan, add garlic and sauté till golden brown. Allow to cool.

Step 3

Grind green chillies, garlic, coriander, peanuts to a coarse paste with sufficient water.

Step 5

Knead jowar flour to soft dough with two cups hot water, one cup cold water and salt.

Step 6

Divide the dough into equal portions and roll into balls. Roll each ball in a little dry flour, press lightly and place on a rolling board. Using your fingers, lightly pat it to make a bhakri.
