Give your usual rotis a new avatar by trying out these beautiful looking Rajasthani style Khoba Roti. Traditionally they are made into a much bigger size. But I went in for a mini version. I should confess that I really enjoyed making these intricate designs. They are really a visual treat and are generally relished with panchmel dal or any side dish. Please do drizzle some ghee over the end product to enhance the flavour.
