When a dash of jaggery is added to whole wheat flour dough, you get this mouth-watering Dashmi Roti (Sweet)! This ever-popular Maharashtrian roti is just mildly sweet, so you can have enough of it to make a complete meal with lemon pickle and black chana usal. As the dough is bound together by the jaggery, a bit of oil, milk and water, this roti stays good for three days, and you can safely carry it along when travelling. Make sure you use good quality of ghee when cooking these rotis to get the authentic flavour and texture.

I made this for my kids and they really liked it, so i give them often in their tiffins to take to school with lemon pickle.
