Kashmiri Roti
Roti or Chapati is made differently in different parts of India. It is the staple food for most of North India. Though it is not staple food to us South Indians, we do love to make and also would like give a try to different varieties of it. When I was going through my old cook books I found it very easy and interesting.  So I gave a try, obviously liked by every one in my family. :P
