In village areas, they are always prepared Bajra ka rotla or Bajra ki roti and eat with sukhi sabzi aur dal and also take masala chaj/ lassi with Gurr. It’s a complete meal of Haryana plate.
Another recipe, besan masala roti is also from Marwari cuisine from Rajasthan. Under this recipe we stuff gram flour with some spices and cook on tawa with ghee and serve with curd.
