Bedu roti is an Uttarakhand delicacy, a lighter version of the stuffed puri as it is not deep-fried. It is a flatbread or paratha stuffed with black gram paste, commonly enjoyed in winters, and prepared for special guests. Due to extreme cold, for the Pahadis, it acts as a tonic food full of proteins.
