Most of the time when we invite some one for lunch or dinner we want to serve them piping hot rotis staright from the tava,even for everyday dinner i do the same,that way roti tastes the best.yesterday when i prepared besan roti ,i didnt puff them,instead i removed them from the tava when they were half done.Before serving dinner i just applied ghee and placed them on hot tawa for a minute .There was no diffrence in taste too..

Looks yummy!! interesting combo!! Besan roti is certainly an fresh alternative to plain roti!! Thanks for sharing!!

I am still getting oriented to the city!! I must say visiting Mustaffa has given me lot of comfort on food matters:)) In Zurich we had no such choice except a tiny Indian store!! Singapore offers lots of choices!!
