Don't settle for bland bajra rotis! Feast on these delicious Bajra and Cauliflower Rotis instead. The grated garlic and spring onions really rev up the flavour of these rotis.

Ensure that you roll the rotis immediately once the dough is kneaded; else it may turn soft and pose a problem while rolling.

These rotis are cooked on a direct flame to avoid the use of oil and make them crisp.

I generally dislike bajra rotis... as i find them very dry... however i loved this recipe... as i guess the grated cauliflower, spring onion and the coriander added moisture to these rotis... surprisingly with not even 1 drop of oil they still tasted great... and yes please roll them as soon as you knead the dough as it tends to leave water making it difficult to roll...

Bajra roti stiffed with cauliflower, spring onions and spiced with garlic and mild chilli paste. This roti is made without oil and add a bit if you want the flavor up. Healthy to eat.
