Methi Roti

I really love Methi in my roti. It is a simple change to the regular roti and flavour is amazing. It complimented my Methi Malai Mutter.


Whole Wheat Flour 2 cups
Methi leaves 1 cup (I used half a big bunch), finely chopped
Chilli powder 1 tsp
Cumin 1 tsp
Turmeric 1 tsp
Salt 1 tsp
Hing a little
Oil 1 Tbsp
Ghee for spreading on Roti.

Method of Preparation

1. Take all the ingredients in a bowl

2. Mix by adding water little at a time to make dough like for Chappati. Keep covered for a couple of hours. Split into 9 small balls.

3. Roll each ball into a circle like you do to make regular rotis.

4. I usually heat my roti directly in the flame to puff it up. But the methi will prevent the roti from puffing like that. So I rubbed a little oil on the surface and then folded and rerolled it.

5. Put in a hot tawa and cook on both sides till done. Add a little ghee on each side while cooking. The roti will puff up nicely in the tawa.

Just the smell of the roti will want to make you eat more.
