Ajwain Ka Parantha

Namak aur Ajwain Ka Parantha

Namak aur Ajwain Ka Parantha is one of the top contenders for comfort food for me. Even know on days, all I want is comfort of Namak aur Ajwain Ka Parantha dipped in adark chai along side some pickle. Or in summer with some aam ras. The post also has a video on how to roll it to get the perfect layers.
