Pad Wali Rotli With Bhavnagari Marcha

Gujaratis are known to have a yen for travel and it is rare to find a Gujarati travelling without his homemade food. The pad wali rotli with Bhavnagari marcha is the second-best combo for travels after theplas. The use of ghee in the unique preparation of the rotli keeps it soft and its flavourful but mild taste is well countered by the long-standing Bhavnagari marcha which is a spicy and tangy accompaniment with the rotli.

Liberal use of desi ghee is not a bad idea as this keeps the roti soft and also acts as a preservative.

Ingredients

  • Wheat flour (atta) (1 cup)
  • Salt to taste (1tbsp)
  • Oil (as required)
  • Desi ghee ()

Method

  • In a paraat, add atta, oil and salt to taste.
  • Mix well and knead it into soft dough using water.
  • Divide the dough into equal lemon-sized sized balls and keep aside.
  • Take two balls and roll them into small-poori sized discs.
  • Apply some melted ghee on one side of the roti and place the other disc over the first disc, and flatten. 
  • Dust off excess flour and heat it on a hot tawa until cooked and puffed on both sides.
  • Serve hot or store.
