Serves : 4
  • 1 cup wheat flour

  • 1/2 tsp salt or as needed

  • 1/2 tsp garlic paste

  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds (jeera)

  • 2 tbsp Clarified butter (ghee) or oil

  • 1/2 cup water or as needed


  • Sift the flour in a mixing bowl add salt, cumin seeds and galic paste mix well.
  • Add melted ghee. Rub the flour between your fingers so that entire flour is well coated with ghee.
  • Add little water at a time to knead a stiff dough. After kneading it smooth just coat it with some ghee and let it rest covered for 15-20 minutes.
  • Pinch a large lemon sized ball from the dough and roll it to make a smooth ball. Dust the counter well and roll out the dough ball to make a thick round roti.
  • Heat tava on medium to low flame. Spread a little ghee on one side of the roti and place that side on the tawa. After 20 seconds, flip the roti and start pinching on the top of the roti. Note= if you don't want to use your fingers. Don't worry you can use knives or tong.
  • Keep pinching till the entire roti is covered. Flip the roti and again roast from the patterned side.
  • Once both sides are lightly browned hold the roti with a tong, remove it from tawa and place it directly on flames.
  • Flip and roast from both the sides till its evenly cooked from both the sides. Once done, switch off the flame and pour melted ghee on the roti and serve.
  • Your Rajasthani Khooba Roti is ready to be served with Bhujiya pyaz ki sabji, bhindi ki sabji, dal, lehsun ki chutney or veg rayta. Enjoy 😊
