What is Khoba Roti?

Khoba roti is a part of Rajasthani food, a designer roti! A thick chapati using whole wheat bread with some ghee/clarified butter is prepared and pinched to make a pattern. The pinching not only gives a very beautiful look to the roti but also helps it get cooked properly. This Rajasthani khoba roti can take your dinner recipes to another level. Whenever I would make some dal and serve with simple roti or butter roti, the menu looked very boring and incomplete. So I would always team that up with some side dish. But since I have started making khoba roti my dinner recipes got very simple. The best part is that this is an easy recipe for khoba roti. Even beginners can get this roti perfect following the technique used in this recipe.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Khoba Roti:

The key ingredient for any roti recipe is kneading the dough properly. That gives soft chapati whether you are making butter roti or tandoori roti or khoba roti. The best part about Rajasthani recipes is that these don’t call for many ingredients. The ingredients required for khoba roti are:

Whole Wheat Flour: This recipe calls for atta. We don’t need any different variety of atta, the regular one. You can also make khoba roti using multigrain flour.

Ghee/clarified butter: Another Rajasthani recipe that is prepared with atta, ghee, etc is baati. Baati, however, calls for a lot of ghee. The quantity of ghee required for khoba roti is less as compared to baati.

Milk for kneading dough: For softer khoba roti I have used lukewarm milk instead of water for kneading dough.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
