Masala Palak Bhakri / Spinach-Sorghum Flatbread

Hello Foodies,
          Palak-Jowar Bhakri is my kind food, it's savory, flavourful and toasty flatbread for any meal of the day and a great tasting recipe for the whole family. Instead of the same old side of Bhakri, serve up toasty, crispy and mouth-watering Palak-Jowar Bhakri (Spinach-Sorghum Flatbread).
