Unleavened rotis of wheat and maize flour, Tikkar is a mouth-watering delicacy from the dessert province of Rajasthan. Cooked with ghee, this crisp bread is wonderfully flavoured with ginger, garlic, onions, and more, which makes it enough to serve it with a simple accompaniment of curds and pickle. Just make sure you serve it immediately before it hardens.

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