BM #100 Week 2 Day 2 - 

Another recipe with the letter 'B' is Barley Roti. It is very similar to jowar roti and has a very earthly flavor and I am sure it needs some getting used to.

Barley roti is a great substitute to rice when someone is trying to cut down rice consumption. But keep in mind that portion size matters a lot and that 2 rotis would approximately be sufficient for one person.

Ingredients - 

Barley Flour 1 cup
Salt 1/4 tsp (Optional)
Flaxseed Meal 1 tsp + 3 Tbsp warm water

Method Of Preparation -

In a bowl, mix the flaxseed meal in 3 tablespoons of water and set aside for 5 minutes.

In a mixing bowl, add the barley flour and salt if using.

Add the flaxseed mixture and pour warm water gradually and knead a stiff dough. Cover and set aside for a few minutes.

Pinch 6 equal portions of the dough. 

Roll into discs of 4 inch diameter. I used a tortilla/puri press to make my job easy.

Gently transfer the disc onto a heated griddle. Cook on both sides until brown spots appear. It can be further cooked directly on the flame to get the rustic look and taste.

Cover in a paper towel lined box and continue for the remaining portions of the dough.

Serve warm with yogurt and any curry of your choice.

  1. Is rolling out barley roti as tricky as jowar roti? A healthy alternative to rice.

  2. rajani Says:
  3. I find rotis made of other grains to be a lot more filling than the regular ones. It’s an acquired taste definitely, but so much better for your health.

  17. They look like rustic jowar rotis and am coming across barley rotis for the first time, I think. How difficult is the preparation if you don't use a tortilla press?
