The word 'khoba' means indentation or cavity and that is how these rotis are prepared. They are best cooked in a gas tandoor but an ordinary tava (griddle) over gas will give you equally good results.

This bread truly unravels the mystery of the vast desert expanse. The word 'khoba' means indentation or cavity and that is how these rotis are prepared. They are best cooked in a gas tandoor but an ordinary tava (griddle) over gas will give you equally good results, if cooked over a slow flame. Serve this roti hot, smeared with ghee.

Khoba roti is very similar to bhakri in taste. but looks completely different. The pinched rotis looks completely different. Start piching it slow, and you will make it perfect.

I cut the oil a bit on these rotis to make them healthier. They come out thick and tasty and go really well with pickle or dal. Need no rice and two rotis will stuff you completely and the best part is that they are healthy. I prefer them to the every day roti.
