For today, I have a healthy mixed flour roti that's spicy and with masala. It is also very good for diabetic diet. Athamma makes it for herself, while we make regular Bajra roti or Jowar Roti. We either serve it with chutney or kurma. So those times, this is the roti that Athamma makes for herself. This is so delicious that you would simply eat it as such without any side dish to dip.
I remember Amma making something similar with just bajra flour, this roti has a mix of all whole grain flour and is so filling. I liked it so much that I wanted to record it for later usage.
Multigrain Flour Masala Roti
Ragi flour - 1/2 cup
Jowar flour - 1/4 cup
Bajra flour - 1/4 cup
Wheat flour - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Oil for cooking
For the Masala
Green chilies - 3 long
Onions - 1 medium
Coriander leaves handful
Tender curry leaves
How to make the roti
Dry roast all the flours separately and allow it to cool down.
Mix all the flours in a wide bowl, add in all the spices and onions. Slowly add warm water and knead to a stiff dough. Divide the dough into equal balls.
This roti needs to be patted down, so on a wet cloth or plastic sheet, pat down each ball into a circle.
Heat a tawa, grease with oil. Gently transfer the rotis and cook on both sides.
Serve it as well as the spice is enough, else this makes a great combination with chutneys.
