You might have tried stuffed rotis with varied fillings ranging from potatoes to spinach or even sweet corn and green peas. But, have you ever tried Stuffed Bajre Ki Roti packed with chopped chawli flavoured with green chillies and garlic? This innovative filling not only enhances the flavour of the bajra rotis, it also imparts the necessary softness making the rotis very palatable. Since it is difficult to roll the rotis with the filling inside, here the mixture is sandwiched between two rotis, which also simplifies the preparation. Enjoy it fresh off the tava.

Bajra roti stuffed with chawli is something really different in taste. A garlicky flavor with a slight taste of chillies. I enjoyed this with a bowl of dal, which made my meal wholesome.
