Missi Roti - A Rajasthani Recipe

Now a days, I have made it a point to try out different cuisines. In India we have different ways to make a particular food item - Tamilnadu style, Andhra style, kerela style etc. But whenever we think of roti or anything tandoori the first thing that comes to your mind is Northern part of India. They love to make different kinds of rotis and they all taste scrumptious. So I thought why not a Rajasthani style for preparing Roti? So here it comes- the 'Missi Roti'. Missi Roti is traditionally made with a combination of whole wheat flour (gehun ka atta) and chickpea flour (besan).

1 cup of Wheat flour
1 tsp Red chilly powder
1 1/4cup of Besan
1 tsp Coriander Powder
3 tbsp Ghee
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp Kaala Jeera
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp Ajwain
Water to prepare dough

In a Bowl mix the wheat flour and besan together.
Add oil/ghee, salt, red chilly powder, coriander powder, cumin seeds, kala jeera and ajwain.
Mix well. Add warm water and make the dough. Roll into small balls and make it into a round shape using the roller.
Put these rotis in the hot tawa and cook them on both the sides.
Brush missi roti slightly with melted ghee. Serve hot.
Since it is a rakasthani food, it goes well with rajasthani side dish. However, we can eat it with Raita, Pickle or any other gravy we love. This Missi Roti is very easy and will take 10 to 15mts to prepare.

I am sending this recipe to the 'Roti Mela' hosted by Srivalli. This is my first recipe to any such event. I am really happy that there are a lot of people like me who love to eat and cook different varieties of food :)
