  • The dough should be soft enough and should be rolled without cracks.
  • So due to the addition of hot water, makes rolling of flatbread job much more manageable.
  • Knead, knead, knead to make dough soft(it helps to make bhakri puffy)
  • While rolling bhakri place one hand around the edges and then roll with the other hand, that will help you to make crack free and round bhakri.
  • The dough should be rolled thin, so thinner the dough the more it will puff.
