Ajwain has such a tantalising aroma and flavour that it can pep up a dish as a standalone spice! You will realise this when you try this mouth-watering Indian style ajwain chapati. Quick and easy, all it takes is the addition of carom seeds to the flour when making the roti dough, but it makes such a notable difference to the end product.

Ajwain has many health benefits to its credit as well. On top of the list is its digestive property. It aids in digestion and helps relieve bloating and prevent acidity.

Tips for ajwain roti. 1. While selecting carom seeds, choose seeds that look crisp and fresh, and have a strong aroma. Check the date of packing and choose a recent lot, as very old stock would have lost much of its aroma. 2. Ensure the dough is soft, so rolling is easier and the rotis turn soft too. 3. Serve it immediately to enjoy its texture, flavour and aroma.

I love this ajwaini roti, flavourful, have it hot straight from the tava, with curd. Also can be had with any subziz.
