Missi Roti

I hope the Indo-French Butternut Squash-Potato Bisque was interesting enough yesterday. Today let us enjoy this simple everyday kind of roti from Punjab. 

Punjab also known as 'the land of 5 rivers', is very fertile and so agriculture is a very flourishing industry. The Punjabis are basically very good food connoisseurs. They love their parathas in many forms and their food is very rich and often times healthy.

I had plans of making the classic combo of Makki Ki Roti and Sarson Ka Saag but I shall reserve it for sometime later. Lets check out this Missi Roti. Missi means mixture. These rotis are typically made impromptu. The kids love these kind of rotis and so these rotis saved the day for me :).

While I prepare for the next hop in our journey, enjoy these rotis.

Ingredients - 

Wheat Flour 1 cup + more for dusting
Besan / Chickpea Flour / Senagapindi 1/4 cup
Onions, finely chopped 1/2 cup
Green Chillies, finely chopped, as needed

Missi Roti

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, add all the ingredients except oil and water. Mix well.

Slowly add water as needed to knead into a soft dough. Cover and set aside for a few minutes.

Heat the griddle/tawa.

Pinch the dough into 7-8 equal parts and roll each of them into a thin circle (roti).

Gently place the dough circle on the hot griddle.

After bubbles appear, flip it, spray oil/ghee and after a few seconds, flip it and spray oil/ghee until both sides are uniformly cooked.

Cover in a paper lined box and continue with the rest of the dough.

Serve it with spiced yogurt or any other accompaniment of your choice.

Preparation Time 30 min
