Ingredients Serving: 5

  1. 1 cup Wheat Flour
  2. 1 cup Besan/ Gram Flour
  3. 4 tbsps Kasuri methi
  4. 1 onion (finely chopped)
  5. 1/2 tsp turmeric
  6. 1 tsp Ajwain / Carom seeds

  8. 2 tbsps Oil / water - to knead
  9. Ghee / butter for roasting


  1. In a large bowl, add both the flours, onion, kasuri methi, turmeric, ajwain and salt. Dry mix all and then add 2 tbsp of oil and knead it to make a soft dough using required water.
  2. Heat and iron tawa or a non stick tawa. I used an iron tawa here, to get the rustic flavors.
  3. While the tawa is heating. pinch a lemon sized ball from the dough and roll between your palm and roll out on a dusted floor with a rolling pin to shape it a roti.
  4. Place the roti on the heated tawa and dry roast from both sides. Now apply a little ghee on both sides and roast for another few seconds till you see brown spots on the rotis.
  5. Press the edges well with a spatula while roasting such that the edges get cooked well.
  6. Transfer the missi roti on a plate and similarly make more rotis with the left over dough.
  7. Pile them over each other and serve hot one by one by adding a dollop of ghee on each roti with some Jaggery and pickle.
