Rotlas are made with bajra, jowar or nachni flour, and combine very well with ghee, jaggery.

Take care to make the rotlas as soon as the dough is kneaded, as the dough tends to harden quickly, making it difficult to roll. With practice and patience, you can surely master the art of rolling the rotlas uniformly and making them puff up.

You can also serve rotlas with Baingan Bharta , Khatta Urad Dal and Red Chilli Thecha , as it makes a complete meal combo and is sure to attract everybody.

Making rotla is an art. I tried many times but couldn''t get perfect results. I tried this recipe then and it turned out awesome. The bajra rotla tastes awesome with jaggery and ghee.
