How To Make Khoba Roti

The best part of being a food bloggers is that I get to try a different item each time in the name of posting a recipe on the blog. This way I get away with a lot of things in the name of experiments.

But it is because of these experiments, I get to prepare awesome things like Khoba Roti. The recipe of which I saw on TV a long time ago.

And I had prepared Paneer to enjoy the Khoba Roti with.

And believe me, it was a killer combinations. The Khoba Roti is equivalent of two plain roti. So, you get to spend a little more time than usual to consume one Roti, and you will love that.

The Capsicum Paneer recipe will be posted later today has been published. But please do consider making this on Special Occasions or Special Family dinners/lunches.
