Ingredients to make Bajra na Rotla

  • 1 cup bajra flour/ pearl millet flour + bajra flour for rolling
  • water for kneading dough
  • melted ghee for applying on rotlas

How to make Bajra na Rotla

  1. Sieve the flour in a wide bowl.
  2. Add water gradually and knead into a soft dough. Keep kneading with your palm for 3 to 4 minutes till the dough becomes very smooth.
  3. Divide the dough in 3 equal portions.
  4. Place the ball on a flat surface. Flatten the ball with your palms until the rotla has attained a round shape. Sprinkle some bajra flour if it gets sticky.
  5. Heat a tava/griddle on medium flame.
  6. Place the rotla on tava/griddle and cook for a few seconds on one side and turn over gently with a flat spatula to the other side. This side should be a little more cooked than the first side.
  7. Turn the gas to high flame. Hold the rotla with a tong and place the top side on direct flame (remove the tava from flame at that time).
  8. You will notice that it begins to puff. It’s absolutely fine if it doesn’t puff. Just allow it to cook evenly.
  9. Remove from flame and apply ghee on rotla.
  10. Continue the process with the remaining portions of the dough.
  11. Serve the Bajra na Rotla hot with jaggery and white butter.
