Khooba roti

Being brought up in Rajasthan I saw people making these roti in villages we use to call it Angara roti or jadi roti only but I got to know this name 'Khooba roti' while watching a popular cookery show on T.V ....memories took me to those old days when we all five friends used to sit together and aunty (one of my friends mom ) use to prepare these hot crispy rotis with special gatte ki sabji. I simply love the flavors, it’s pretty much mild and simple though… I obviously watched her making it regularly, so refreshed this technique!!! And just gave it a shot…

But believe me, it turned out to be so soft inside and crisp outside. Also, it added an extra star in a complete meal with gatte ki sabji and Mixed Dal (Methi flavored)!!! I strongly recommend you to try out this one…

Turnips are called Shalgam in Punjabi/Hindi, Gonglu in Punjabi and Gogji in Kashmiri. They are mild in taste and absorb spices well. We love it in various forms. Shalgam is a winter vegetable and is a popular recipe from Punjabi cuisine. Shalgam (Turnip) belongs to the radish family. Shalgam ki sabzi is very good for health as it is very low in calories and fat, and a good source of fiber and several vitamins like Vitamin C, Vitamin B, VitaminB3, Vitamin B6. Gur is Hindi/Punjabi for jaggery.  This creamy version from Punjab is one of our favourites.
