i really do not have any preferences when it comes to gluten-free roti’s and i prepare both for my lunch and dinner. but i have developed a special interest to millet recipes and flatbread recipes from it. i am particularly interested with the health benefits of bajre ki roti has to offer. as i personally do not like the taste of millet-based roti’s and i feel it very pale. but these recipes are my husband’s favourite and he likes it to have it with dry chutney powders or spice powders and thick yoghurt. he likes to have bajra roti for morning breakfast as it keeps him full till afternoon lunch and can have something lite. i personally like it to have it gravy based curries like baingan masala or bhindi masala with peanut-based gravies.

bajra roti recipe

the recipe for bajre ki roti is no rocket science and can be made in no time, yet some tips and suggestions. firstly, in this recipe i have shown two ways to roll the rotis, i.e with rolling pin and via tapping it by hand. beginners can find it difficult with bare hands and i recommend to adopt rolling pin. secondly, the roti’s has to be thick as compared to normal wheat-based roti or chapati. if you roll it thin, it may start to have cracks and disintegrate. lastly, you may add finely chopped veggies like onions or leafy veggies like coriander, pudina and dill leaves to roti dough to make it more flavoured.
