Fried Orotti – Masala Orotti


Fried orotti and chicken curry, one of my favorite combinations…

Hope those who observe fast is having a wonderful Ramadan, mine is going great. Starting my day without sipping that one cup of hot coffee, I thought it was going to be hard. However, when I overcame that tempting thought, I felt energized and fresh. It’s all in the mind and fasting in deed helps to have our mind under control.

One of the dishes I love to make during Ramadan is this fried orotti. This fried orotti along with chicken or mutton curry tastes delicious. If you don’t want to fry it just cook the rolled dough on a greased pan till the dough has cooked well. Well, when fried this orotti tastes really delish.

Here is the recipe for making Chicken Ney Orotti or Fried chicken Orotti
