Bread Baking Babes bake Bakharkhani, and a love story

Bakarkhani (also called Bakarkahni, Baqeerkahni, Bakharkhoni or Bakorkhani) are flatbreads that came into the Asian sub-continent with the tandoor and other breads of Turkish and Mughal traders and invaders sometime in the eighteenth century. It is quite popular in Bangladesh, India and Pakistan. In India, The Bakharkhani is typically found in areas where history, food and culture are influenced by the Mughal rule like Lucknow, Hyderabad and Kashmir.BBB logo November 2014

So, now the Bread Baking Babes, who can never agree on the proper execution of a recipe, can also disagree on the spelling of the bread.

Makes perfect sense when you think about it…..

Aparna, of My Diverse Kitchen, and our host kitchen for the month, found a wonderful recipe, (even though there are many ways of spelling it) with a wonderful love story to go with it.

And now I know what mawa is…..


I gave you a bit about the bread – for the love story you’ll have to visit My Diverse Kitchen – where you will also find the recipe, detailed instructions on mawa and the info on being a Bread Baking Buddy.

Now, read on and drool over these are fluffy, flaky, flatbreads
