Masala Roti Recipe
1. Makes 6 to 8 medium sized rotis
2. 1 cup whole wheat flour (gehun ka atta)
3. 1 small onion, finely chopped
4. 1 small green chilli, finely minced (add only if your child can handle the chilli else replace with mild chilli powder)
5. Handful of fresh coriander leaves, finely chopped
6. A pinch of Turmeric powder
7. Salt – as per taste
Step 1: Mix onion, green chilli, coriander, turmeric powder and salt in a bowl.
Step 2 : Take the wheat flour and start to knead the dough with 2 tablespoons of oil, add the vegetable mixture and knead using water.
Step 3: Once the dough is ready taste it for salt and keep aside, covered, for 10 minutes.
Step 4: Divide the dough into 8 balls. Roll each ball into a medium sized roti. If you want to make smiley rotis then cut them using the cookie cutter. Cook the rotis on a hot grilled, but on a slow flame on both sides till light spots appear. Smear oil on both sides before taking off the griddle. Serve immediately or transfer to a container.
TIP : You can add finely grated carrots, cauliflower or cabbage to the dough, to make it even more healthier. Powdered rolled oats or soya granules can also be added.
