My taiji (grandmother’s sister-in-law) was a great lady in her time. She took all efforts to make herself independent and teaching her daughters whatever she could. Even though her husband was a bank manager in 90’s, but she worked very hard which reflects in my cousins. Whenever we visited our grandmother, she always treated us with this elaichi roti.


In those days earthen stove was used, so just take a portion of the dough, flat it using both palms and place it on the griddle. In few seconds flip it on other sides and then cook it inside the earthen stove. The aroma of cardamom coming out of the stove with was just heavenly. This is a great snack for kids, or for traveling.

  3. Such a lovely rustic looking flatbread. Some flatbreads bring so much fond memories. My aunt use to make these sweet parathas with all yogurt sabji. She would use left over gulab jamun syrup to make the dough.
