Bajra rotis or "bajra na rotla" as they are commonly known in Gujarati are extensively eaten during the winter season in Gujarat. Plain bajra rotis or rotlas are crushed lightly with hand (to which ghee and chopped jaggery are added) are eaten during dinner. These bajra rotis can also be eaten for breakfast with hot or cold milk. To perk up their flavour, I have added mashed potatoes, chopped onions and freshly grated coconut. I am sure you will enjoy these delicious rotis as they are packed with nutrition and provide energy and protein.
