Though bajra is grown only in certain parts of Rajasthan, bajra rotis are relished all over the state. Thickly rolled bajra rotis are cooked over "kanda" (cow dung cakes) in the villages. That is the authentic way of preparing them because it imparts a smoked flavour to the rotis. But here’s a tava version of the famous bajra roti. Bajra rotis can accompany virtually any vegetable or kadhi on a Rajasthani menu. Bajra roti, lahsun ki chutney and onions is the staple diet of the locals. Although absolutely simple to make, these rotis are delicious!

Bajra Roti
 on 14 Aug 14 12:32 PM

Traditional Rajasthani recipe. The dough for this type of roti is generally soft and hence it can be made by patting the dough using your fingers or by using a rolling pin as one finds comfortable. Tastes good with any subzi or even with just curd.
