Zunaka in Sprouted Grain Pocket- A meal in under 15 minutes!

A modern take on the classic Zunaka Bhakri makes for a healthy, scrumptious, quick and easy weeknight meal.

Zunaka in Sprouted Grain Pocket- A meal in under 15 minutes!
Broccoli Zunaka Pocket-A healthy meal.

Zunaka bhakri is the absolute robust, down to earth, tasty food of Maharashtra, India. The protein rich, gluten free Zunaka is made with greens and besan (chick pea flour).Bhakri is a flat tortilla like bread made typically of freshly ground jowar flour, which is not available here.

Sprouted grain pitas reminded me of the wholesome bhakri. So I decided to try them with the 7 minute Broccoli Zunaka! The healthy broccoli that is so tender crisp in this recipe, makes it moreish. Zunaka in Sprouted Grain Pocket is a healthy, scrumptious and wholesome meal that reminded me of enjoying warm and toasty bhakri with zunaka and its accompaniments.  I served it with spicy garlic chutney, crunchy fresh onions and radishes and dahi kanda, all yummy compliments to the zunaka bhakri.

Dahi kanda is sliced onion combined with yogurt, a touch of salt, sugar (if the yogurt is sour) and cilantro. Get the recipe for  Indfused’s protein rich, healthy, 7 minute Broccoli Zunaka here.

Toast the pitas, cut in half and stuff with the Broccoli Zunaka, add let everyone add their own accompaniments!

And enjoy this quick and easy, healthy, protein rich, wholesome meal any day of the week!

Wishing you all a happy weekend. This week, Fiesta Friday is co-hosted by  Monika @ Everyday Healthy Recipes and Sandhya @ Indfused ….that’s me! Join us at the party !

    1. I love those accompaniments- needed the thecha and forgot the scallions (paticha kanda ) I had 🙁
      Thanks so much Vidya!

    1. Thanks so much Sudhir. This is the favorite hearty food of the farmers and is popular in cities and villages alike.

  1. I love to learn about new dishes and this one looks so gorgeous! Glad to be co-hosting FF with you this week:) As far as leaving comments, is it ok with you if I comment on even numbers?

    1. Thanks Monica! I am happy to be co-hosting FF with you too. Sure, I will comment on the odd numbers so we have all covered. If we see a friend on either odd or even, lets feel free to comment on those as well. Hope that is okay with you.

    2. Monica, I loved the Pumpkin Ricotta cake you posted but for some reason my comment does does seem to go through on your blog. Wish I was more technically savvy 🙂

  2. So fresh, colorful and oh so healthy Sandhya. Would love to dunk those pockets in a nice spicy chutney and down it with a nice cup of chai. 🙂 Have you challenged Rachel Ray yet? Indfused’s recipes can be done in 15 minutes, she boasts that hers are done in 30 minutes. :)) Yay Sandhya, yours are quicker and more flavorful!

    1. Thanks so much Loretta! With you in my corner, I feel I can challenge anyone 🙂 You will have to be the judge for that competition too! Thanks my dear friend. We really enjoyed these pockets. I had the spicy chutney too!

  3. Wow, this looks incredibly good – thank you for sharing this. I love to be introduced to different foods and you’ve made it look and sound so mouth watering!

    Mollie

    1. Thanks Angie! It s a wholesome, down to earth, meal for farmers and city folk alike in Maharashtra, India. I found a shortcut to making the bhakri bread 🙂

  4. Very nutritious and such a fabulous meal to prepare easily and quickly, thats a brilliant idea to stuff in breads. Completely wholesome.

  5. What a lovely twist you gave to the original junkha by adding broccoli just loving it and the fusion of serving it in a pita pocket just awsome.

  6. What a different and interesting twist to the traditional zunaka recipe. Plus this gets ready quickly

  7. Lovely fusion of flavours! The best part is that absence of a few ingredients didn’t stop you from enjoying your favourite meal, rather encouraged you to be more creative. Brilliant!

  8. Zunka Bhakkar is one of my favourite post trek meals. In fact, it is the carrot that gets me to the top quickly. 🙂 I like your fusion version which is so close to the authentic one.

    1. Thanks Aruna! I had climbed Sinhagad for the Zunka bhakri and kanda bhajji too 🙂

  9. Zunaka is new to me but the preparation looks delicious. I prepare something similar but with less flour. I’m bookmarking this recipe to try it out with pita bread.

  10. I have never had the pleasure of enjoying this dish..your version sounds and looks absolutely delicious! Wonderful share 🙂

    1. Thanks so much Sapana. Sorry for my late reply. I was away on vacation and just got back.
