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)
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
- 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.
Serve this with some kadhi (yogurt based side dish) or pickle or some plain yogurt as you may like.
