Coriander Roti

I have been making simple phulka roti since I was a kid! Probably that was the 1st thing I got to learn in kitchen… And till now, I’m used to make it at least 3-4 times in a week! Now it’s time to try out varieties… Making it a little healthy and yummy was all that I had on mind. And finally, I’m here with a super-duper version of that :)

Have you ever had rotis made with any sort of green leafy veggies? You definitely must have tried parathas or theplas… Then why not to make roti? Here you go with recipe of my experiment :)
