Dhana Lahsan Bajri Rotla / Coriander Garlic Pearl Millet Flat Bread

Dhana Lahsan Bajri Rotla / Coriander Garlic Pearl Millet Flat Bread

Dhana Lahsan Bajri Rotla / Coriander Garlic Pearl Millet Flat Bread is a unleavened flavored flatbread made with Pearl millet flour and a paste made with coriander, garlic and green chili. It is served hot with baigan bharta or sev tameta or curry. It can also be enjoyed with pickle or yogurt or jaggery and ghee or gujarati kadhi or dal. It is thicker than the regular thin roti/chapati.

I prefer adding a little amount of wheat flour while kneading the dough to make the rotla soft. However if you want to make gluten free rotla then skip adding wheat flour to it. Addition of curd to the dough gives sourness and softness to the rotla. To make it vegan, skip adding curd to the dough and add more water instead. Knead a semi soft dough to make soft rotla.

The rotla taste soft and nice when served hot. However you can make the rotla and then wrap it in the cloth and just while serving warm it in microwave with the cloth for 15-20 seconds and serve with the curry of your choice.

The rotla can be enjoyed with different traditional dishes:

Tuvar dana ringan nu shaak

moongwadi ki kadhi

ringan nu raitu

Bharela ringan bateta nu shaak

ringan batata nu shaak

dhana lahsan ni khandeli chutney

sukha lahsan ni chutney

aloo moongwadi ki subji

Simple moong dal

So friends do try this traditional and tasty recipe for your family and friends and please share your feedback with me.
