Let’s try giving an exciting twist to the traditional bajra rotis and rotlas of Gujarati fame. Adding some mashed potatoes to the dough makes the Bajra Aloo ki Roti soft and pleasant to the palate, while amchur, coriander and green chilli paste impart a welcome peppiness. Coconut and onions not just enhance the texture but the flavour of the rotis too. While this recipe is actually easy to prepare, you just need to take care of one thing – go easy when rolling as too much pressure can result in cracks, especially along the edges of the roti.
