by Arpit, Published: September 05, 2013
A unique but delicious Rajkot’s favorite Dinner, Chapdi Undhiyu is here for you all.
Important ingredient in this dish is Wheat flour coarsely ground. In some places we call them as Daliya, some poeple tell it as Small Lapsi Rawa and in Gujarat this flour is famous as Bhakhri no Lot. So wherever you are located in this world, I believe you will definately find any of this variant of flour to make this delicious dish at home.
How to Eat it? Chapdi Undhiyu is originated from Rajkot and it should be consumed like Daal Baati. Means before you start eating Chapdis, you should crush them with your palms/hand. Once done you should pour in Undhiyu in this, mix it and gupp it. Chopped Onions, Butter Milk and Papads goes really well with Chapdi Undhiyu.
