Missi Roti

Missi Roti
Whether you are bored of the regular rotis or just want to substitute come of the carbohydrates in it with protein, then missi rotis are for you. It is such a delicious roti, not complicated to make and on a day of low energy or time, you could eat it with pickle and yogurt. I have pretty much fllowed Tarla Dalal’s recipe and did not have much need to change a lot. Traditionally it is fried with lots of ghee and I leave it to you whether you want to use ghee or oil, little or more. This is great for kids as well as it has carbs, protein and some greens. Here is the recipe...

1 cup besan (chickpea flour)
½ cup all purpose flour
½ cup wholewheat flour
1 generous handful of fenugreek leaves/coriander leaves, chopped
2 generous pinches of ajwain
Salt to taste
1 tablespoon oil
Warm water
1 teaspoon finely chopped green chillies (optional)
Butter/ghee to fry the rotis

Mix all ingredients except the butter/ghee together, adding just required water to make semi stiff dough. Rest the dough, covered, for 30 minutes

Divide the dough into lemon sized balls and roll to thin rotis using flour to dust

Cook both sides on hot tava, just like regular roti adding generous amount of ghee/butter. Poke it with th corner of the ladle so all the ghee gets in (yum!)

Serve with pickle and yogurt!
