ABOUT Rajasthani Khoba Roti RECIPE

The word 'khoba' means indentation or cavity and that is how these rotis are prepared. This Indian bread truly unravels the mystery of the vast desert expanse. They are best cooked in a gas tandoor but an ordinary g over gas will give you equally good results, if cooked over a slow flame. Serve hot!
