Once when I was blog hopping, I came across a flour called Rajgira flour. I hadn't heard of that until then. Curious as I am, I looked over the internet and found that it is Amaranth flour. I have seen Amaranth seeds in many ethnic stores around here but never knew much about it. I was amazed at the nutritive value of this flour (good source of Iron and Calcium). So I got the flour and adapted the recipe from here to make these rotis. These rotis were amazingly soft. It was surely different from the regular wheat flour roti in texture but delicious, nonetheless. 

Rajgira Roti

Ingredients - 

Rajgira Flour 2 cups
Potatoes Boiled and Mashed 1 1/2 cup
Salt as per taste
Jeera powder 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves finely chopped 2 Tbsp
Mirchi Powder 1/2 tsp (or as per taste)

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, add the flour and mix in the mashed potatoes.

Add salt, coriander leaves, chilli powder and jeera powder in the flour. 

Make a firm dough adding water if required.

Make equal portions of the dough and roll each of them softly like a chapati. Since rajgira flour doesn't have gluten, it will stick to the rolling pin. Generously use flour for dusting. (I used wheat flour for dusting).

Heat a non stick pan, cook on both the sides adding oil/ghee as required like regular chapatis.

Serve these rotis with any curry/sabji of your choice.

Preparation Time 35-40 min
Makees 10-12 rotis
