Sajji Rotti

Sajji rotti is another all time favorite and I had a recipe request for the same. So here goes the recipe!

4 cups Sajji(Bajri) flour containing 1/2 cup udid flour, 1 table spoonwhite or black til, salt to taste.


  • Take sajji flour in a big flat bottom vessel, add salt and til (sesame seeds) to it.
  • Pour hot boiling water to make a solid dough.
  • Knead the dough thoroughly by pressing several times with palm and fingers of right hand till the dough appears sticky.
  • Take a small ball of the dough (size of ping-pong ball) and dip it in dry flour.
  • Put it on the platform (or a flat surface) and make rotis by patting softly first with one palm and then with both the palms.
  • Once it attains a certain size (approximately 3-4 cm diameter), pat and rotate it on the platform as you pat. Use dry flour on the platform to keep it from sticking.
  • Tranfer the roti on hot tawa, apply water on the upper side using a wash cloth soaked in water.
  • Turn it upside down and bake on low fire till it is crisp.
  • Keep the rotis in open flat container till they are totally dry.

Tips and Tricks:

  • These rotis can remain fresh for many days and are tasty with different dry chutneys and curd.
  • These serve as appetizer and are usually served in the begining of meals, specially heavy festival lunches.
  • When you make the rottis, you can keep two tavas. Once it gets cooked, you can transfer to the second tava that is on very very low fire so it becomes extra crunchy.

Typically Served With:
sajji rotti, jhunkad vadi, different chutneys like agashi hindi, shenga chutney, dry coconut chutney, karindi and hesar kaal..sluuuurrrrp!!!
