An upma like dish made with powdered rotlas, the Wagharelo Rotla is a classic, time-tested way to make use of leftover rotlas.

The characteristic taste and aroma of rotlas linger on even after they are powdered, and when cooked with ingredients like onions, ginger, garlic and green chillies, the powdered rotlas transform into a dish that is too yummy to resist.

Slightly spicy, the Wagharelo Rotla is a wonderful breakfast option for cold winter days. In case you love this dish too much and want to make it with fresh rotlas too, you may do so by all means.

But as soon as you make the rotlas, apply some ghee on them and allow them to rest for at least two hours before blending. Otherwise you will end up with a paste instead of a powder.

Try your hand at other interesting bajra based snacks like the Bajra Onion Muthia and Bajra, Rice and Sprouts Moong Puda .

Fresh green garlic has its own taste and flavour.. wen mixed with the powder rotla and indian masala.. It makes it more tasty.. to have it.. This is a great variation and a wonderful breakfast option for cold winter days.
