Chawal Roti /Chokha na Rotla/Rice flatbread

I have loved chawal ki roti since childhood. I was brought up in Vapi, which is in South Gujarat (India). There people make this chawal roti. They call it as “Chokha no rotlo”. It is generally served with different spicy curries or different lentil dal, Vaal ni dal or garlic chutney.  Many restaurants in Daman (which is near to Vapi) have this roti in their menu.

This roti is soft and very light to eat. It is very easily digested. There are different ways to make this roti.

I have tried many different ways and now have got this successful method of making this delicious chawal ki roti.

My son loves them very much and likes to have them with simple fried Bhindi ki subji.

Do try them and you will like to make them again and again.
