Masala Roti

As the name suggests, these Rotis are masaledar and delectably spicy! If you want them even spicier, you can add finely chopped green chillies. Whole cumin seeds impart taste and crunch to the Rotis, and you can also add carom seeds (ajwain) or sesame seeds for more crunch and taste. asafetida, which is faintly noticeable in these Rotis, is a digestive aid and helps prevent flatulence (gas) and hence used in daily cooking.
