Bhakarwadi is a Marathi snack recipe. Bhakarwadi is most popular in some parts of India i.e. Gujarat, Rajasthan, Pune, Maharashtra. Bhakarwadi is a crispy deep-fried pinwheel snack which has a crispy outer layer made of all-purpose flour, and the stuffed masala is spicy and sweet at the same time made of coconut and some Indian spices.
As Bhakarwadi is deep-fried so many people don’t prefer it so we also have a bhakarwadi recipe baked in which we bake this mini bhakarwadi instead of frying.
There are also other versions of bhakarwadi that are- aloo bhakarwadi recipe, kolhapuri bhakarwadi recipe, baked bhakarwadi recipe, mini bhakarwadi recipe, chicken bhakarwadi, green bhakarwadi.Gujju people are most famous for their food choices which are really delicious and simple like, Undhiyu, Handvo, Dal dhokli, Patrode, Dhokla, Methi ka Thepla, Khandvi, etc.
