Therefore, every home chef or cook has to master the art of making perfectly cooked, fluffy rotis and parathas. And to master this art, you will need (lots of practice) and a good (perhaps great) tawa. There are several roti tawas- from cast iron to non-stick tawas- in the market, so, how to decide which is the best roti tawa in India. Read on to know which roti tawa is perfect for you!
