Bhakarwadi is synonymous with Maharashtra. Ask them, and they would say it is a Maharashtrian snack. And if you are a true-blue Marathi reading this, we can already hear you say ‘Duh!’ Bhakarwadi entered Pune in 1970, when Raghunathrao Chitale, the current owner of Chitale Bandhu Mithaiwale — a household name in the state — first tasted the bite-sized snacks. But, in fact, its true origin lies in Gujarat.
Bhakarwadi -- also spelled as bakarwadi -- is a traditional sweet and spicy snack that is believed to have its genesis in Ahmedabad. It is a dry treat, with a little hint of both sweetness and tanginess. These deep-fried spirals of dough -- stuffed with a plethora of spices — unite the gentle sweetness of dried coconut and the musty, warming flavours of poppy and sesame seeds. Addition of cumin seeds, hints of tangy, dried, powdered mango, and a dash of chilli renders it a unique flavour.
When Raghunathrao Chitale tasted it first, he decided to sell it at his store — Chitale Bandhu, in Pune. He added more spices to it to match the Maharashtrians’ taste bud and introduced the new snack in his store. The sale soared and bhakarwadi eventually became the favourite time-pass snack in the region. Bhakarwadi makes for a perfect companion with a steaming cup of tea.
It requires quite a bit of effort to make bhakarwadi. A practised hand is needed to roll out the thin layer of dough -- made of refined flour, gram flour, and salt on the surface. After smearing the surface with chosen masalas, it is rolled into flutes. Little space is left behind at the circumference, so that the spices get tugged in well into the dough circle. The rolls are then sliced into pieces and dunked into a pan of steaming oil. It is fried until it turns golden-brown. The main skill lies in perfectly rolling out the stuffing, so that it doesn’t fall out when fried. The mixture needs to have all the spices in the right proportions, to roll out the perfect balance of sweetness, with a tinge of sourness.
