Khooba Roti | Pinched Flatbread from Rajasthan | Breads of India by Masterchefmom

Khooba Roti

Hi Supermoms,

Today I am sharing an interesting traditional flatbread recipe from Rajasthan. It is called 'Khooba Roti' . The speciality of this  roti/Indian flat bread  is that it is has a beautiful pattern made by pinching the rolled out roti . 

The rotis are thicker and each roti takes at least 10-12 minutes to cook well. But they are beautifully toasted and crunchy . Perfect to dunk into a wholesome  Indian curry. 

Khooba Roti :

Preparation time : 30 minutes
Cooking time : 45 minutes - 1 hour
Serves : 4
1 cup = 250 ml cup

Ingredients : 

3 cups whole wheat flour/atta
1 teaspoon ghee/clarified butter
1/2 teaspoon nigella seeds/ kalonji /onion seeds 
salt to taste
water ( adjust)

ghee /clarified butter ( to grease/drizzle )

Method :

1. Add the flour, nigella seeds and salt in a wide bowl and mix well.

2. Add ghee , mix and incorporate it into the flour. 

3. Add water little by little and make a smooth yet stiff dough. 
4. Cover and allow it to rest for 20 minutes.
5. Divide the dough into small orange size balls.

6. Dust the work counter and roll them into 6"-7" circle with a thickness of 1 cm each.

7. Heat a tava / skillet on low flame  and cook the roti for just one minute on one side.
Chef tip : Earthernware tava gives the best tasting khooba roti .
8. Flip the roti and start pinching it in a circular pattern.

9. Drizzle ghee on the sides so that the bottom side gets lightly roasted.
10. Now flip the roti and cook the pinched side.
11. Remove the roti from the tava and place it directly on the flame on the pinched side.
12. Remove from heat and drizzle ghee .

Serve the Khooba Roti with your choice of side dish . I served it along with Palak Paneer, Achaar/pickle  and buttermilk.
