Karari Roti – Crispy Rumali Roti

What is karari roti?

Karari roti is a very crispy rumali roti which is served in many restaurants in India as a starter or appetizer. This is a very crispy roti recipe which is like papad and can be consumed without any side dish. This roti looks like a roti tokri with spices. This is a restaurant style karari roti so I made this roti on a homemade tandoor. I use a aluminium kadai to make this crispy karari roti.
