This is variety of roti. My Grandmother ‘Mai aaji’ used to make this as a brunch at her time. She taught her daughter (my Aai) and from her to me. It is very delicious. You can eat it with any chatney, pickle or just like that………….

Wheat flour – 2 cups
Rava / semolina - 1 cup
Hot Oil – 2 teaspoon
Garlic cloves chopped – 3-4
Pure Ghee – 3-4 Table spoon
Salt to taste.

Mix wheat flour, rava salt & hot oil and make very stiff dough. Keep aside for 10 minutes. Now make equal portions of the dough. Roll it like thick roti. Now with knife make small slits to that roti. Put Garlic cloves on it and press it.

Cook on hot tava with lots of pure ghee on both the sides. Press it time to time while cooking. Serve hot with chutney or pickle.

Thank you Meera, Archana and Nilima for your comments.
Nilima, Actually we use garlic for its flavour and as we all know garlic is useful for preventing from the common cold and flu. It is a good antibiotic also. Most of our grand mothers were not so studied but they were knowing these type of home remedies very well, Hats off to them.

I made it over the weekend,and absolutely loved it. My 4 yr old called it Indian Garlic bread!! Thanks for sharing.
One suggestion, if you could display the labels of your posts on your blog, it will be easier to go through the recipes. Just my 2 cents.
