Rajasthani Korma Roti Recipe | Korma Pudi Recipe ( Crispy Green Moong Dal Roti ) - Travel Recipes

Rajasthani Recipes

I know every one have their own home fav recipe which might only be found in your family and each family has its own way of making any traditional recipe isn't it. Am sharing one such recipe from our family today , As we are rajasthani hailing in chennai when ever we used to travel to our native we used to pack some travel foods as it took 3 days for us to reach rajasthan in train back then , now facility has improved and we can fly to rajasthan any time but when we were child it would take 3 days exactly to reach rajasthan so the travel is much fun when ever there is stop in city we used to taste the fav recipe of that particular place . Also we used to take some travel foods like tamarind rice, pudi, pickle,and not to forget Korma roti which is a keeper. This particular roti is my fav as it tastes yummy even if it is had cold. This is our traditional roti we make at home and unlike from other kinds of roti these are meant to be crispier. These roti can be made in normal chapathi size but I made them mini size. They are perfect to have as a snack  or you can even enjoy them with pickle. Lets move on to the recipe..
