Karam Roti

Crispy & Spicy Snack Rotis.

This is a tea time snack or can be made for breakfast. This is also one of my favorite recipes from my Grandmother. It’s very easy and fast to prepare.

1) In a bowl, add all the ingredients Besan or Chana Dal Pwd, Idli Rava, Onion, Green Chilies, Coriander leaves, Ginger Garlic Paste, Cumin Seeds, Red chill pwd, Turmeric pwd & salt.

2) Make a batter. Add some water and mix it well. Keep it aside and let it soak for a few mins.

3) Heat a pan or tava. Grease it with a little oil.

4) When the tava or pan is hot enough pour the batter and spread it.

5) When it gets a little brow flip it just put a little oil and fry it on the other side. Cut it into 4 pieces so that it gets cooked inside and is crispy.
