Padvali Roti is a traditional Gujarati snack, which is prepared frequently during the mango season to enjoy with aam ka ras. Although these thin Guajrati rotlis are prepared using just whole wheat flour, like any other roti, the method of rolling and cooking the Padvali Roti in pairs makes them quite different from other varieties like phulka. The thin Padvali Rotis are cooked only on a tava and not on an open flame. A pair of the rotis are layered for rolling and cooking, in order to make thin rotis that can be cooked perfectly without crisping them or burning them too much. Follow the instructions as given to enjoy perfect Padvali Rotis, and make sure you serve some aam ras with them!
