Bajri Na Rotla(Kem cho series)Gujarati - Reposted

One more recipe in Kem cho? series.  I remember as a kid whenever winter time comes my mum used to make Bajri Na Rotla, used to eat with gor(jagarry) the only way i would eat it.. now my kids does the same thing. Specially in winter i really enjoy this rotla with Baingan Bartha, stuffed peppers and gor....

Unfortunately, I can't make rotla using the traditional method(with the hands), hey but who cares..... there is a say in gujarati"ROTLA NU KAM KE TAPAKA NU" whatever way I do make rotla they come out perfect, and they do keep you warm in those winter days....

You will need
1 cup Bajari flour(pearl millet flour)
salt to taste


Mix flour and salt and add enough water to form a stiff dough.  Divid the dough into a small ball and make rotla on your chakla or any smooth surface by tapping your hand on it.

Place on a well hot gridle or tava and cook on both side on slow fire.  Traditionally rotla cooked on clay tava, which i have got here in UK.  Serve hot with spreding ghee with choice of your curry...

Best goes with any baingan curry, spring onion kadhi or mung curry


Linking this recipe to event Know your Flours - Millet Flour event started by me , guest post by Akheela at Torviewtoronto.
