    1. Thank you, syare meals. You can try to roll it in paper thin rotis. If its sticking to the surface, you can aaply some dry wheat flour on it.

    2. Thanks. Will let you know how it turns out :-)

    3. Hi, I just finished making the khakras, they came out really well. Not as thin as yours, but they are tasty. Thanks for the recipe. Is it necessary to keep the rotis for 4-5 hours before the second round of cooking? I made them off after 2 1/2 hours as I did not have time to keep it longer.

  2. nicely done khakra..looks perfect
