Maida rotti / Ujjrotti

Rotti is a speciality breakfast dish in the state of Karnataka, India. My mom made many kinds of rotti for some varieties the dough will be mixed with raw flour and for some of them flour will be cooked to form a dough. This rotti is also called as “Ujjrotti” as it is flattened using a rolling pin like chapati. This rotti tastes best with onion chutney.
