Stuffed bajra roti, looking for something to lower blood cholesterol levels? here’s an exotic version of the humble bajra roti, stuffed with a paneer, methi and tomato mixture that makes this a scrumptious delicacy. The fibre in bajra binds with the cholesterol and fats and ensures that it is ejected from the system. Serve with garlic chutney for that extra punch!

Little time consuming and little practice needed in rolling these stuffed rotis...It's worth making due to it's high nutrient content coming from bajra, paneer and methi..No need of any accompaniment..can relish it alone...

Bajra is healthy and combined with paneer it gives you a complete meal. I love this and often have it for dinner.
