Nimki Roti Recipe!!

Around this time in Nepal, with different other varieties of rotis we also make Nimki. This particular one is especially made in Newari community back home. When we go to our elder in Dashain for Tika, we take Nimki with other many different varieties as a gift or koseli. It is also included in goodies for brothers in bhai tika. This was my first attempt and i was very surprised  by the fact that how close it was to what we make back home. Writing and sharing recipes has helped me so much with my cooking skills. Follow the steps to treat yourself Nimki roti :) Click here for Khurma/Khajuri Recipe.
