Inspired by the two popular dishes, the Gujarati snack khakhra and Rumali roti, comes the Rumali khakhra ! Take a look at the video here:
In the video, we see the man flatten out the maida dough using a rolling pin. He makes a ginormous size roti that could be bigger than a person’s forearm! Next, he tosses the dough around in the air, just like pizza chefs do with theirs. Once the dough becomes extremely thin, he places it on a heated ulta kadhai. The roti is cooked on it till it becomes so crisp that it takes on the curved shaped of the tawa, combining the crispiness of the khakhra with the thinness of the rumali roti. The rumali khakhra is then brushed with ghee and sprinkled with a variety of masalas to give it a spicy flavour. the video was uploaded by Instagram based food blogger @foodie_incarnate and it has garnered 1.4 million views along with 100k likes.
