Khasta Roti

  • Duration: 45 mins
  • Serves: 2 people

Authenticity Slice

Because khasta roti is authentically flaky in texture, make sure to drench the flour with milk, carom seeds and ghee and then knead it.

Trivia Tadka

Did you know that the name khasta roti came into existence from the crispy texture of the food that comes from cooking it in tandoor? Also known to boost stamina, this bread is every Punjabi grandmother’s favourite choice for breakfast.
