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 Ajwaini Roti. Quick and easy, all it takes it the addition of carom seeds to the flour when making the roti dough, but it makes such a notable difference to the end product. When you cook the rotis with ghee, the aroma that comes out is so luring that you will want to eat it right off the tava. And you can do that if you choose to – because a cup of curds is all you need to serve with this aromatic roti!

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