Srivalli has been organising blogging marathon for some time. This is the fourth edition, where the marathoners are divided into 3 groups and I decided to join the third group and this is my first in running a marathon. I opted to run along since the duration was 7 days only. My attempt to post continuously on my own for a week has never been successful. So wanted to test the waters and when you have a group to motivate you, I'm sure I will cross the finishing line. I will be blogging recipes on the theme- Indian Bread. So for the next seven days you will see varieties of Indian breads here.
The first on the series is Makki ki roti with the addition of onions added to the dough.
- Makki ki atta- 1.5 cups
- Medium sized onion - 1, grated
- Green chilly - 1 no
- Hot water - about 1 cup
- Salt -1/2 tspn
- Wheat flour/atta for dabbing
Mix all the ingredients except water, in a bowl. Add hot water in parts to the flour mixture. Mix with a spatula. When the dough is warm to handle with your hand, knead it to a smooth dough. Add more water if required. The dough should be smooth and soft.
Heat a cast iron tawa. Smear the tawa with little oil. When the tawa is moderately hot, place a roti. When one side is cooked. Drizzle oil along the sides, flip and cook other side too. Serve hot. Usually its served along side with Sarson ka saag. I have served with fresh beans in palak gravy. Shall blog that recipe later.
