You may have a question, how to eat Sada Khakra?
Sada Khakra can be relished in many varieties. We have listed some of our preferred and favourite combinations for you.
1) Chai Khakra
Dip it in Tea and eat it before it breaks and melts in the drink. or alternatively, take a bowl and pour milk tea into it and then crush the Khakra's and add to it. Eat it with a spoon and enjoy a quick meal. You can also eat Khakra separately while sipping your chai or coffee if you like it that way.
2) Khakra Makhaan with chutney
This is one of my favourite way to eat the Khakra. Spread Makhaan (butter) on top of the Khakra and sprinkle your favourite dry chutney's like peanut chutney, til (sesame) chutney or explore some South Indian style chutney's like gun powder also known as podi chutney.
