Missi Roti

Today is last day of the Blogging Marathon. I thoroughly enjoyed blogging various rotis. Hope you readers also liked the various rotis I posted here. So here comes the last  recipe in the seven day series of Indian bread. I chose to blog missi roti. Missi roti is a combination of besan/chana dal flour and wheat flour/atta. Unlike other rotis where atta is not the main ingredient, this missi roti is very easy to roll. It can be rolled very thin too to make khakhras. With slight dusting with wheat flour, rotis doesn't break/stick to the board while rolling.

You need
  • Besan - 1 cup
  • Wheat - 1/3 cup
  • Salt - 1/4 tspn
  • Oil - 2 tspn
  • Water to make soft dough

Take all the ingredients except water in a bowl. Add water to make a soft dough. Add water in parts else you will end up with a sticky dough due to besan. Rest the dough for 15 minutes.

Divide the dough into 6 parts. Roll out each portion into circle using wheat flour for dusting.  Heat a tawa. Place the roti. Flip and cook on both sides. Drizzle oil lightly. Enjoy the aroma of  besan while cooking the roti.

I served hot rotis with baingan ka bartha.
