Recipe of missi roti
1 cup atta (whole wheat flour)
1 cup besan (gram flour)
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp kasuri methi (dry fenugreek leaves) - crushed
Salt to taste
1 tbsp oil or ghee (clarified butter)
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1. Mix all the above ingredients in a bowl. Add enough water and knead into pliable dough. Cover it with a damp cloth and set aside for 1/2 an hour.
2. Take a ball out of the dough and roll into a 6-7 inch diameter disc.
3. Heat a tava (griddle) and cook this disk or roti on it. Cook from both sides, brushing with oil, till golden brown. When rawness of the flour disappears and brown- black specks appear on the roti, it is done. Similarly make other missi rotis from rest of the dough.
