How to Make Bajre ki Roti/Bhakri

Take the bajre ka atta and knead with warm water--sprinkle little by little and knead for a long time, till soft and pliable. It takes some practice and patience. Knead small amounts at a time.
To shape the roti, you have to use your palms as it keeps breaking. Do not use a rolling pin. You have to make a small ball and keep pressing with your open palm, to make thinner. If you do it in a hurry, it might break. Do it slowly.
Once it has reached the size you want, cook over a hot tawa on both sides, till cooked through. Serve smeared with ghee.
Bajra is always served with extra helpings of ghee, as it is said to be very dry. The ideal daal with this is dhuli urad ki daal.
