No Mughlai meal is complete without the use of oodles of butter and cream. The mughals known for their love of all things delicious have used butter not only to serve with rotis but also to knead into the dough while preparing them. This roti prepared with butter and simply flavoured with freshly crushed black pepper is a real treat. Add salt sparingly if you are using salted butter to prepare this roti or it may end up being too salty.

Makhani Roti ( Mughlai Khana)

Its slightly different from the regular rotis we have.. The pepper gives a light taste to the rotis and makes it more delightful.. It is also very very soft because of the butter.. So its important to use butter.. Dont try to replace it with oil or ghee..
