Bajra vadi | Gujarati bajri vada recipe

Bajra vadi , a tea time snack made using Bajra flour and other spices. Bajra ni wadi is a traditional Gujarati snack, which i recently learnt from a friend who visited us. I am a huge fan of Gujarati and Maharastrian cuisine. Though i have not explored much in trying out gujarati recipes but whenever i come across the recipes i feel like eating them. This bajra vadi i have seen many times in various blogs and always wanted to give it a try. Recently our friend, who are gujaratis, visited us, i asked her few gujarati recipes and this bajra vadi is one among them. Finally i tried this yesterday and it turned out yum. The taste was similar to bakarwadi and matri. Thank you so much Heena for the recipe. Try this tea time snack using bajra flour | kambu maavu| pearl millet flour and let me know how it turned out.

  2. Crushed fennel seeds can be added to dough. 
  3. Do not cook in a high flame as it will make it too soft and can not be stored for a long time too.
