Bajra Roti

Bajra Roti

Basic recipe credit - Tarla Dalal

Bajra flour available @ Nuts N’ Spices and Fisn N’ Fresh store, Anna Nagar, Chennai

Makes: 4


1 cup ( 200 g ) bajra (black millet) flour
80 g whole wheat flour (gehun ka atta)
1/2 teaspoon salt to taste
65 - 75 ml medium hot water
2 - 3 teaspoon ghee for frying
1/4 cup extra bajra flour


Combine the bajra flour, wheat flour and salt and add 65 - 75 ml hot water to make a soft dough.

Divide the dough into 4 equal portions.

Roll out each portion into a thin roti of 150 mm. (6") diameter.

Generously dust the rotis with dry bajra flour to make the rolling easier ( roll very carefully ).

Cook the rotis on a hot tava / griddle ( medium heat ) till both sides are light brown in colour ( same method of chapati ).

Brush one side of the roti with melted ghee and serve hot with Rajasthani Garlic pickle or any other gravy dishes or pickles of your choice.
