Zunka | Jhunka

Posted on1 Year ago

Zunka is made from besan(gram flour) and bhakari is quite similar to roti (indian bread) which is made up of rice flour,bajra( pearl millet) flour.but it is quite thicker than the roti.

It is very delicious and little bit spicy.

It is preferred as brunch or breakfast.
