Kandhe Ki Roti - Mummy's Favourite Onion Paratha

40 mins (prep 20, cooking 20)
10 ingredients
12 servings
My Mother, Mrs. Shashibala Ramchandani, passed away in her sleep at 9pm due to a massive cardiac arrest here at our residence in Pune on the 19th of April, just 2 days after my birthday. She was the best woman in this world and she made me feel strong and capable of doing anything I wanted. In the last few days that were left of her life, she enjoyed eating these rotis for breakfast alongwith a hot cup of tea on the side. I am posting this recipe today and I sincerely hope all my friends will try it and give me their reviews. Also, for those Zaarites I don't know, I would be so happy if you'd give this a try and get back to me through a review on how you liked it. A maid working for my home and looking after my Mom taught me to make this roti.
