i had posted this recipe long back in my website, and i did receive good feedback from my readers. yet there were quite a few suggestions from my readers especially regarding the spices used in it. as a matter of fact, i had only used aamchur in my previous post for sourness and not used tamarind chutney. whereas in this recipe i have used tamarind sauce mixed with the spices which make deadly combination of spicy, sour and sweetness. in addition, i have also added sugar and dry mango powder in the spice mix which should balance out the taste and flavour. yet there is a lot of scope for experiment with the addition of chilli powder, sugar, aamchoor as per the taste preference.

anyways some easy and important tips, suggestions and variations for a perfect maharashtrian bhakarwadi recipe. firstly, i have used plain flour or maida flour to make the dough as per the traditional recipe. yet it can be changed and wheat flour can be used to make it more healthy and appetite. secondly, while deep frying these, you have to take extra precaution with the temperature and flame intensity. oil should be sufficiently hot enough, yet it has to be cooked in low flame. otherwise the roll may open and spill the spice stuffing. lastly, store these in an airtight container for longer shelf life.

notes:

  • firstly, maida can be replaced with wheat flour for a healthy alternative.
  • also, do not roast spices as we will be deep-frying and double roasting spices may give burnt flavour.
  • additionally, fry on low flame to get a crispy and crunchy bite.
  • finally, bhakarwadi recipe tastes great when the sweet, spicy and tangy flavour is balanced.
