Step by step paya roti recipe with photos.

Paya means ‘trotter’ and roti means ‘flat bread’. Paya roti is a delicious and rustic way of eating Trotter. The tandoori nan is cooked in spiced water and paya are added. You can garnish the mixture with spices and herbs of your choice.

This recipe is also great in utilizing leftover paya. We all are fond of boiled egg so I garnished it with eggs, you can skip eggs if you want. As per thickness of paya gravy decide how much water should be added. Thickness and size of tandoori roti varies, I suggest add less or more roti accordingly. So some ‘andaza’ cooking will help in this recipe.You can also check my hara masala paya recipe.
