If we want to go back to stock recovery how do we do that?

I think that you need to flash miui rom, and after install the recovery ask to you if you want to flash the Mirecovery
@thebrainkafka I try to enable the TDB, but the recovery don't ask to me if i want to split the data!! In this way I have one data for two ROM and the system app like clock, browser give me an FC on the first ROM

You can use an app as flashify or rashr,
Before you have to extract the recovery.img from the zip file and put it in your sdcard.

I was also unable to install it earlier but now I found a tutorial on that.
Easily Flash Custom Recovery in Xiaomi Mi4

After doing the steps mentioned in that post I was able to flash custom Roms and was also able to make backups using CWM.
