Vaghareli Rotli

Vaghareli Rotli or Rotli nu shaak has been a family favorite recipe, this is something we grew up eating when mom made lot of Rotlis and wanted to make something spicy and tangy next day. We loved this as it tasted so comforting. The Rotlis will soak up all the juices from the spicy chaas and will give you that flavorful bite. It is also light on stomach. I like to eat it just by itself as it hits all my taste buds. I am sure you will love this as it is best way to use leftover Rotlis
