Vegetable Bhakarvadi - Sanjeev Kapoor's Recipe


This is another yummy thing from Sanjeev sir. Its a much tasty version of our good old bhakarvadi. I had a helping hand in mom while preparing this dish. My sis's friends had arrived at our place and for them we thought to prepare this dish. Believe it was like gone in seconds kind of thing. There was hardly anything left for us to eat it with content. It truly is an amazing dish.



Refined Flour ( Maida) = 1 cup
Semolina (Rava/Suji) = 1 tblspn
Salt to taste
Oil + deep frying = 2 tblspn
French beans, roughly chopped = 100 gms
Green peas = 100  gms
Potatoes, boiled & mashed = 3
Black pepper powder = 1/4 tsp
Garam Masala = 1 tsp
Ginger - Green chilli paste = 2 tsp
Fresh coriander leaves = 2 tblspn
Coconut scraped = 5 tsp


1. Knead the refined flour with semolina, salt, 2 tblspn oil and sufficient water to a semi-soft dough. Cover with a damp cloth and set aside.

2. Blanch the french beans and green peas separately till soft. Drain thoroughly and mash.

3. Mash together the french beans, green peas, potatoes, salt, black pepper powder, garam masala powder, ginger - green chilli paste, coriander leaves and coconut.

4. Divide the dough into four equal portions and roll out into thin chapatis .

5. Spread the vegetable mixture evenly on all four chapatis.

6. Roll them tightly into cylinders and cut the cylinders into half inch slices.

7. Heat sufficient oil and deep fry the bhakarwadis, on medium heat till golden and crisp.

8. Drain on absorbent paper and serve..

Chef's Tip:

In case the filling mixture is thin, add a little poha and mix.
