ABOUT Rajasthani Missi Roti... RECIPE

This traditional Indian flat bread combines the goodness of wheat flour and gram flour. There is typically either a Punjabi or a Rajasthani version in this. Carom seeds are added in Rajasthani version of this scrumptious roti and fenugreek leaves are added in the Punjabi version. Both of them are equally good and taste just phenominal. The careful blend of spices and the yoghurt makes this very soft and tasty version of a roti. No doubt it tops my weekly menu chart at home. Add 1/2 tsp chat masala powder and 2 tbsp finely chopped coriander while kneading the flour . Another variation is to skip carom seeds and instead add 1/2 tbsp roasted and crushed anaardana , 1/2 tbsp kasoori methi and 3 tbsps chopped coriander leaves to give it a punjabi touch . Traditionally , missi roti is cooked directly over flame . To prepare it in a traditional way , when tiny bubbles start to rise on the surface , flip it and cook for a minute . Then remove the griddle from flame and place half cooked roti directly on flame . Flip the roti again and cook till both the sides have the brown spots .
