Having a long tiring Tuesday at work? Well, the all-time saviour Tea is here. Now, when you talk about tea, how can one forget about its companion without whom a sip of tea doesn’t feel the same, it’s the Khakhra! The Gujarati snack khakra is one of the most munched snacks in the subcontinent.

It is savoured for breakfast and also as a tea-time snack. It’s quite similar to chapati. Made of whole wheat and cereals it turns out to be a very healthy snack for chai lovers. One can have different variations of khakhra by just adding different things like chutney, curd, jam, etc. 

There are about 30 varieties of Khakhra. Other than the plain Khakhra, the Khakra comes in other varieties also like Masala Khakhras, Butter Khakhras, and other flavoured Ones. Khakhra can also be transformed into a sweet snack by spreading some ghee and sugar on top of it. Other than this, the Khakhra fulfils another purpose which is of qualifying as a gifting option.

Some brands, from which people buy Khakhra are Daadi’s Khakra, Snaqary, Snackible, Sambha Khakhra, etc. Even celebrities like our Prime Minister Narendra Modi loves to have it as a snack.

Now having told you about the snack, one can buy it from the online market with ease like from Amazon, Flipkart, etc. It can also be brought from local stores or supermarkets easily.

Having talked about the legendary duo of Tea and Khakra let’s talk about the recipe for making Khakhra-

Khakra Recipes for a great Tea-Time

Normal Khakra-


  • 2 cup wheat flour
  • 2 pinches of powdered turmeric
  • salt as required
  • 2 tablespoons refined oil
  • 1 ½ tablespoons kasoori methi powder
  • 4 teaspoons red chilli powder
  • 1 ¼ cup water


  1. Take a bowl and mix wheat flour, red chilli powder, salt, refined oil, turmeric powder, and water. Knead this properly to form a stiff dough.
  2. Now take out small chunks of the dough and roll them to form small balls. Cover the balls with the muslin cloth.
  3. Next, press the balls into a circular shape, much like a chapati.
  4. Turn on the gas and cook on low heat.
  5. Roast the chakra on the griddle till the colour changes to golden brown on both sides. 
  6. A secret; To make the Khakra even crispier, press it with a cotton cloth while roasting it on the griddle.
  7. After cooking, you can serve it as a single snack with chai or pair it with chutney, pickles, jams, etc.

Masala Khakra Recipe-


  • Whole wheat flour (atta) 1 cup
  • Refined flour (maida) 1 cup
  • Garam masala powder 1 teaspoon
  • Oil 2 tablespoons
  • Water or warm milk as required
  • Ghee 4 teaspoons
  • Salt to taste


  1. In a bowl, combine the wheat flour, refined flour, salt, and garam masala powder using a sieve. To make a soft dough, add oil and enough water or milk and knead.
  2. Make eight individual chapatis by rolling out small portions of dough. The chapatti should be roasted over low heat on a hot thick tawa.
  3. Smear some ghee on both sides. Make a turn and clamp down on it with a wooden press. It’s done when the exterior and interior are both pristine and a light brown colour.
  4. Remove it from the oven, let it cool, and then store it in an airtight container, but be careful because it’s very crisp and could break.

Now that we have told you about the different types of Khakra along with the recipes of how you can make them, we hope that now you will make them at your homes and enjoy them with tea or as a breakfast snack.
