This unleavened maize and wheat flour bread is typical of Rajasthan. As the name suggests, tikkar is a dry, chewy bread. This texture is achieved by making a stiff dough. I have used oil to cook these rotis to make them crisper, but traditionally they are cooked without using any oil. Oil or ghee is smeared over the roti just before serving. This rustic bread complements all kinds of spicy pickles.

Great Rajasthani paratha. It's wholesome and healthy. Has a nice flavor of maize in the roti. Have with curd or pickle.
