BAJRE KI ROTI / PEARL MILLET FLAT BREAD


Bajra preparaions are mostly relished in winters.. Desi style bajra rotis accompanied with raw onion, green chillies  taste so delicious with both veg and non veg side dishes.

Ingredients ..
Bajra flour ... 2 cups or as needed.
Wheat flour ... 2 tbsps
Ajwain ..... 1/2 tsp
Salt .... 1/4 tsp (optional - as some prefer without it)
Ghee ... 1 tbsp to add in the flour.
More ghee or oil for brushing on the rotis.


Method: 
1. Mix the two flours, ajwain, salt and melted ghee.
2. Knead adding water little by little as needed.
3. Sprinkle some flour on the rolling board and flatten the rotis with your hand. I use the rolling pin to make them thinner as we prefer them thin.
4. Roast them on the griddle and smear the ghee on top when they are done.
Serve hot.

Pin for later

  3. My all time favorite. My mother in law use to make them for us but when she left for India, I had to learn how to pat them evenly and in shape. Now I find rolling it gently much easier. Like the idea of adding ajwain to Bajre ki roti, will add next time I make them.

  4. This bajre ki roti must taste delicious with the addition of ajma and ghee. That's how my MIL used to make it. Like you, I prefer the crispy thinly rolled ones.
