ABOUT Methi Missi Roti RECIPE

This is a very easy, simple and a traditional roti that is very popular in Punjab and Rajasthan. It is generally prepared with whole wheat flour, combined with besan, chopped fenugreek leaves, onion, green chillies, yoghurt and other dry spices. Very tasty and equally nutritious, they can be relished with either yoghurt, pickles or just plain butter.

Ingredients Serving: 4

  1. 2 cups whole wheat flour
  2. 1/2 cup roasted chickpea flour / besan
  3. salt to taste
  4. 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
  5. 1/2 tsp. red chili flakes
  6. 1 tsp. carom seeds (ajwain)
  7. 1/2 tsp. cumin powder
  8. 1/2 tsp. coriander powder
  9. 1/4 tsp. asafoetida
  10. 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  11. 1 tbsp. oil to knead
  12. 2 cups chopped fenugreek leaves
  13. 1 onion, chopped
  14. 1-2 green chilies, chopped
  15. 2 tbsp. yoghurt
  16. oil to shallow fry


  1. In a bowl take all the ingredients (except oil to shallow fry) and mix everything well. Add required quantity of water, little at a time and knead into a soft dough. Cover and keep aside for 30 minutes.
  2. Divide the dough into equal portions (I could make 9 rotis out of it). Take each portion and roll out into a circle by dusting some flour.
  3. Heat 1 tsp. oil in a tawa / gridde and shallow fry the chapattis one at a time till they are well fried on both sides. Brush some more oil if required.
  4. Fry the remaining rotis in the similar way and serve them hot with either yoghurt, pickle or butter.
