This dish is really oozing with flavour in every bite, starting right from the rotlas with which this chivda is made.
The dough for the rotlas is boosted with quite a few taste-givers like ginger, garlic and green chillies, and further the shredded rotlas are also cooked with an aromatic tempering and even more tasty ingredients like onions, capsicum and spice powders.
A squeeze of lemon and a sprinkle of coriander leaves raises the bar even higher, making this one of the tastiest snacks you would have ever tasted!
Enjoy the Bajra Rotla Chivda hot and fresh, with a cup of steaming chaai . Try other Bajra based delights like Bajra Onion Muthia and Bajra Vadi .
