Missi Roti - मिस्सी रोटी (Chickpea Flour Flat Bread)

Hello Friends,


Here is another delicious Rajasthani recipe that you may be familiar with or even had as this is one of the recipes which has come out of Rajasthan and become famous in the culinary as otherwise most of the delicious recipes of Rajasthan are still very unknown.


It is one recipe that has Rajasthan written all over it. Now, like many other recipes, this too gets made slightly differently in every house hold. But, here is the recipe followed in our house.


Missi Roti - मिस्सी रोटी (Chickpea Flour Flat Bread)
Ingredients
Besan (Chickpea Flour) - 1 cup
Aata (Whole Wheat Flour) - 1 cup
Salt - as per taste
Lal Mirch (Red Chili) Powder - 1 tsp
Haldi (Turmeric) Powder - 1/2 tsp
Ajwain (Bishops Weed) - 1 tbsp
Heeng (Asafoetida) -  1 pinch
Preparation
  • Mix everything first dry and then form into a soft dough by adding little water. (Add small water, mix it then add more and continue this process till all forms into a dough). Always remember one thing while mixing besan that add water very little at a time as besan (chick pea flour) tends to get very sticky very easily.
  • Take a large tennis size ball, dust with flour on a flat surface and roll this ball into a flat circle of about 5-6 inches in diameter.
  • Keep a non-stick griddle on heat and grill this roti (flatbread) without any oil on both sides till they are nice golden brown.
  • Take it off in a serving place or individual plate and apply some butter (Makkhan) on the top side and serve.
Serving
Serve this with some kadhi (yogurt based side dish) or pickle or some plain yogurt as you may like.



I am sending this to my own MLLA # 30 which was started by Susan. This is also going to Cooking with Seeds - Ajwain Seeds event hosted by Seasoned and Dressed started by Priya.

 


This also goes to Anyone Can Cook : Series 9 (With Less Ingredients- WLI) hosted by Umm.




That's all for now. Take care till next post.

One of my fave. Only difference being mine are almost dark brown or black in color, as I mix whole black channa with wheat to make the flour.
Looks delicious.
