  1. Preparing khakhra is a art , and you have mastered it beautifully . Love these JAIN Khakras which have come out so crisp and thin . Serving these with pickle or a cup of hot tea is what most Gujjus enjoy , though I like mine with methi masala .

  2. Perfectly crisp khakras. I love crispy breads. They go so well with a cup of coffee and makes a great snack option. Please pass that plate Bhawana..

  3. Wow Bhawna! I love khakras, but never thought of trying these. I buy them from market only and snack on them frequently. Bookmarking your post and will make some for myself once this marathon is over. Thanks for sharing 🙂
