Week: 1, Day : 2
Theme: Lunch box Recipes

For the second day under Lunch Box series I have a Gur ki Baakhri. These are made from whole wheat flour and jaggery. Both these are very nutritious and are an ideal pick for the Kids Lunch Box.

Adding Cardamon and sesame gives a wonderful flavor to these flat breads , they can be enjoyed with or without an accompaniment.The best part is that these have a good shelf life and can be made and stored for more than a week, of course depending on the temperature and surroundings.
