Bhukaredi or Bhukhredi (भुखरेड़ी) is a village in Ratangarh tehsil of Churu district in Rajasthan. This village was founded by Bhukar gotra Jats.


A group of Chahuman descendents came to Sambhar in 9th century. The newly formed Chauhans forced them to move away from this area. Earlier Bhukars and Chauhans were same prior to their consecration of new Hindu religion at Mount Abu. Bhukar people came to Sambhar under the leadership of two brothers Khem Singh and Som Singh. Khem Singh founded the town named 'Hiras' and started increasing his influence in the area. Som Singh went to Jangladesh and founded town named 'Bhukaredi'. After some time they left the village Bhukaredi and moved to village Gothra (Bhukaran) in Sikar district. Presently there is no Bhukar in village Bhukaredi. After many generations some of these people moved towards Panipat in Haryana.
