Bajra Roti is a staple roti in Rajasthan though these days it is made in all other regions as well.Bajra / Pearl millet or Kambu is a very healthy millet which has great cooling effect.Bajra Roti with lahsun chutney and raw onions is a great combination.The rotis are slightly crispier at the edges with a crumbly texture.We loved it with the spicy lehsun chutney and raw onion slices.
I used homemade bajra flour, you can either make bajra flour at home or buy from any supermarket.
