As Desired
Though bajra is grown only in certain parts of Rajasthan, bajra rotis are relished all over the state. Thickly rolled bajra rotis are cooked over "kanda" (cow dung cakes) in the villages. That is the authentic way of preparing them because it imparts a smoked flavour to the rotis. Bajra rotis can accompany virtually any vegetable or kadhi on a Rajasthani menu. Bajra roti, lahsun ki chutney and onions is the staple diet of the locals. Although absolutely simple to make, these rotis are delicious
