A hearty roti that is sure to remind you of home. The Basic Ragi Roti has a rustic flavour and earthy aroma, which warm your soul and make you feel very contented. You need to knead the dough with warm water – otherwise the rotis will break when you roll them.

Even then, it still requires a bit of knack to roll nachni dough. Not to worry, once you roll a few rotis you will get a hang of it. One thing about Basic Ragi Roti, or for that matter any other roti made with millet flours, is that it needs to be served immediately – in fact, it is best enjoyed right off the tava, with a cup of Raita and a spicy Dal .
