    The Authentic Recipe of Parsi Bhakra ( Biscuit type Donut)

     Parsi Bhakra Recipe I can proudly proclaim to be married into a Parsi bhakra loving family.

It was a ritual she never skipped, once all the other household work was done it was  Parsi Bhakra Recipe time. A big thali was taken and all the ingredients were mixed with a heavy hand. My mother-in-law would instruct the maid to knead with a heavy hand and add according to the recipe in her head. She never used measured proportions yet the bhakras turned…

    My love for tea – Typhoo tea
