  • 1.5 Cup Fine Semolina
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 1.5 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 5 tbsp Melted Butter
  • 3/4 Cup Milk (Lukewarm)


  • In a bowl add Semolina, sugar, salt and baking powder and mix.
  • Add Melted Butter and mix to obtain a crumbly sand like mixture
  • Add the milk and mix everything again.
  • Let the dough rest for 20-30 minutes, so that the semolina is hydrated.
  • Knead the dough well for a minute and divide into equal size portions. Form it into nice 2-inch circle's. 
  • Alternatively one can spread the dough to 1/4 inch thickness. This can be done with hands only, no rolling pin required. Then use a cookie cutter to have uniform disc.
  • Heat a pan and cook each harcha for 8-10 minutes on slow to medium heat.
  • Serve hot or warm.
