  12. Hey Hari thanks for reminding me of this, I have it somewhere in my book, when my sis lived in Umbergaoan her neighbour had made these I had totally forgotten about this recipe, after my neighbour in Bangalore are Rajasthani's, I always saw them making this and kakra almost 2 to 3 times in a week, as they were living in joint family they used to sit around and make these things Oh! yes and papads, oh! my yours pooris are making me bring back all the memories, they used to prick them so they wouldn't become a poori like and was more like a thattai/Nippattu and used to taste great.., I learnt using thyme seeds in my cooking in vast quantities by their cooking..., as always love your clicks they are fabulous..
