Ragi Aloo Roti

BM #68 Day 18 - 

During the course of this month, I realized that getting the kids to eat Ragi is a tough job with a few exceptions. My older one is a little better at adapting to Ragi. She said if there is potato in there I am ready to try. She doesn't know that the brownies which I made a few days earlier had Ragi in it. She just thinks that it is a brownie with bananas in it :).

Since these rotis have potato in them, no complaints from either the dad or the older one.

Recipe Source various sources on the web
Ingredients - 

Ragi Flour 3/4 cup
Wheat Flour 1/2 cup
Potato, peeled, boiled and mashed 3/4 cup (1 big potato)
Salt, Green chili paste as needed
Ginger-garlic paste 1 tsp
Garam Masala 1 tsp
Chaat Masala 1/2 tsp
Ajwain / Vaamu 1 tsp

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, add all the spices to the mashed potato and mix well.

Add in the flours and mix well. Pour hot water as needed to knead it into a soft dough.

Cover and set aside.

Divide the dough into 6 portions (about a big lemon size). 

I tried to roll it traditionally using a rolling pin but it wasn't holding up. So I used a tortilla press / puri press and flattened the dough portion between greased plastic sheets.

I made them slightly thick.

Heat a griddle / tawa. Gently transfer the flattened roti onto the hot tawa.

Cook on both sides spraying as much oil as needed.

Remove into a insulated container. Repeat until the dough is used up.

Serve with pickle/yogurt or gravy as preferred.
