Meetho rotla is a thick flatbread made with coarse bajra flour. It may appear a bit complicated dish, but it is super simple to make. I also share kathiyawadi dahi tikhari and masala marcha which taste great with meetho rotlo. It is usually made for lunch or dinner and sometimes for traveling. The best part of the recipe is that this no-fuss recipe is made with ingredients you are sure to have at home. Do try this!

The key to making tasty meetho bajra rotlo at home are
  • Firstly, rotla dough should be soft and smooth, do not knead tight dough also I made rotla by tapping it by hand. beginners can find it difficult with bare hands and i recommend making it with a rolling pin.
  • Secondly, meetho rotlo has to be thick as compared to normal rotlo. if you roll it thin, it may start to have cracks and disintegrate.
  • Lastly, Cook rotla on medium heat and drizzle with a generous amount of ghee and sugar in its cavity.
