Here's a variation of appas (rice bread) using Suva bhaji, which not only has a pleasing sweetness but also a good store of vitamin A. Knead the dough when hot or else it will not be very smooth. It is best served with a spicy vegetable like Lauki Kofta Curry because the roti itself has a very mild, simple taste.
