When it comes to shifting houses it can be really sad. Eight years back when we shifted from row houses to a bunglow, I was sad. Sad because I would be leaving my friends. Living in the same town one can always meet, but it is not the same. Ours was a group of three friends, a Maharashtrian , a Bengali and me , a Sindhi. All three foodies ! Unfortunately I was not blogging then. Anyway it was a couple of weeks back that we all decided to meet and these Gur aur Til rotis were made by the Maharashtrian friend. They were so delicious that I had to capture them and save on my blog. I would have made them myself, but my friends say , ''It is our blog as well, so what we cook can surely be posted !'' It is surely a blessing to have such wonderful friends.

Coming to these rotis, they are stuffed with jaggery, and the reason for adding the pounded sesame is to bind the mix well, else the jaggery will ooze out of the parathas .

Add oil to the flour and bind the dough with warm water.
