A traditional bread from the imperial Mughal times, this recipe features a plain flour roti aesthetically flavoured with aniseeds powder. Follow the kneading and leavening procedure exactly as mentioned to get the best texture. You can enhance the flavour and aroma of the Moghlai Roti by crushing the aniseeds with a mortar and pestle instead of powdering it in a mixer-grinder.

This recipe of rotis is just perfect for paneer sabsiz. Enjoy this rotis when it is just out from the tava. A little patience needed, but will be happy with the results.

The rotis turned out great. It would be great if you could provide certain pointers , for example, for this recipe , I was dipping the dough in regular aatta to roll it and my roti wasn't expanding at all. After wasting quite a bit of time on a couple of them, I tried smearing a drop of oil before rolling the rotis (it helped).The other one I was caught on, was substituting fresh yeast with active dry yeast/ instant yeast. Nevertheless, the effort paid off, we had tasty rotis for dinner.
