Missi Roti

Missi roti is a Rajasthani speciality flat bread, its a type of paratha prepared with wheat flour and besan flour along with some variety of spices..Its a staple food of many  Rajasthani homes and its an excellent way to enjoy proteins in your diet, these missi rotis are high in taste and definitely healthy..While googling i came to know that this parathas can be prepared in many ways, seems some prepared with onions,garlic or either finely chopped or crushed palak or methi leaves, also its spiced up with red chilly powder along with ajwain and jeera seeds,obviously i went for red chilly powder, jeera seeds and methi leaves.. I served this healthy  paratha with black chickpeas curry which i prepared the same from Priya's Kale chane ki chhole, both turned out dinner simply filling, prefect and super delicious...


1cup Wheat flour
1cup Besan flour/Gram flour
1tsp Cumin seeds
2tbsp Methi leaves (chopped finely) or kasuir methi
1tsp Red chilly powder
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
Salt
Oil for roti

Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl, add little water at a time and make a soft and stiff dough, cover the dough with plastic wrap and let it sit for half an hour..Make medium sized balls from the dough, roll its a thick circle disc using flour while rolling..

Heat a pan, add the rolled roti,drizzle oil to the cooking roti, cook on both sides until they get cooked, serve with any sort of side dishs or simply with pickles..

I had never heard of missi roti, and I am very tempted to try them. Love all the ingredients in them!

oh very intersting I make missi roti at home regularly but dont put too much wheat flour in it, its mostly besan and a little sooji for the crispness
