In my recipe, I share a few tips and the easiest way to make stuffed rotla. The best part of the recipe is that this no-fuss recipe is made with ingredients that you are sure to have at home. Do try this!

The key to making tasty bharelo rotlo (stuffed bajra roti) at home are
  • Firstly, I made rotla stuffing with methi leaves, green garlic onion, and regular spices. You can add different vegetables and spices according to your choice.
  • Also, 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.
  • bharelo 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 flame, also sprinkle some water on top of the raw rotla once it is transferred to tawa. moisture would help rotis to turn soft and fluffy.
