Roti Cheela


Hello dear buddies. How are you all? Today I’ll be posting a breakfast or brunch recipe idea, which I got from yesterday’s brunch of mine that was gram flour cheelas, some dhoklas, and hot cardamom tea. I had some of the cheela batter left with me and so I cooked up this recipe of Roti Cheelas combining the roti and the cheelas. They turned out great and I thought of sharing it with you guys too. It is a crispy, tasty and super handy recipe which you can make any time. So do try it out guys and let me know. The recipe is as follows:-
