BM #92 Day 17 - 

After a lot of searching, I figured that Q for Quinoa is the saviour. I was also thinking that I should showcase a gluten free roti and was wondering if quinoa roti in the lines of jowar roti is possible. I found a few resources online and fine tuned it to my requirements.

Here the dough was slightly sticky and I wasn't able to roll it properly. It could be because I made the flour at home and was not very fine. I probably would make it once more with the actual quinoa flour and verify. I rolled the dough using greased plastic sheets and it was fairly easy to manage.

This is a vegan and gluten free roti. I have a few friends who are allergic to gluten and have requested me to post some gluten-free recipes. I hope I can post more such gluten-free recipes.

Q for Quinoa Roti.

Ingredients - 

*Quinoa Flour 1 cup
Water 1/2 cup

* I had quinoa flakes which I pulsed and got a coarse flour. 

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, add the quinoa flour and gradually add water while kneading the dough. 

The dough tends to be a little sticky.

The dough need not rest. Make 5 equal portions of the dough.

Roll each portion into a thin disc between two greased plastic sheets.

Heat a griddle. Gently transfer the rolled out disc onto the griddle. Cook on both sides and remove onto a serving plate.

Continue with the rest of the portions.

Serve with a spicy accompaniment.

  19. Same pinch Harini! I couldn't come up with anything for Q other than quinoa.I wanted to make something similar to yours but was not sure if it would be easy to roll out. So i made a filling with it!
