Missi Roti - Chickpea Flatbread



    
Today I'm going to share a very popular Rajasthani delicacy called as Missi Roti which is nutritious also.  This we had enjoyed during our visit to Rajasthan few years back. I roughly knew the ingredients but I was told that they use a special kind of Garam Masala in it. So I Googled for this garam masala recipe and found it. This is one kind of Roti ( Flat Bread ) which I had planned to prepare since a long time. The reason being that it freed me from the monotony of preparing the same kind of wheat roti day in and day out and also my urge to notice the reaction of my little one who was having regular roti for dinner for a very long time. And believe it or not friends, my rotis turned out to be good to look at and tasty to eat ( No self praise intended, I am just reporting after seeing the urge from my son).  Hope all of you enjoy preparing and having it with friends and family. 
                                                                            
Ingredients:
1 cup Wheat flour
1 cup Gram flour
2-3 Green chillies, finely chopped
1 Onion, finely chopped
1/2 tsp Red chilly powder
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
1 tbsp Ghee/oil
Salt to taste
Little water 


Rajasthani Garam Masala:
2 Whole red chilly
2 Black cardamom pods
3 tbsp Cumin seeds
1 1/2 tbsp Coriander seeds
1 tsp Ajwain/Carom seeds


Method:
In a tawa dry roast all the mentioned garam masala ingredients for few minutes or till they change color and leave nice aroma. Let it cool and then grind to fine powder. Keep aside.


                                                                                    


Method to make Missi roti:
Sieve wheat and besan together, now mix red chilly powder, haldi, salt, chopped onions, green chillies and just 1 tsp garam masala (which we had prepared earlier) in a big bowl. Mix well all the ingredients and add ghee. Add little water at a time and knead to form a smooth dough. Make sure the dough is not sticky and now cover the dough with a damp cloth for 20 minutes.
Divide the dough into equal portions, make small round shape balls and then roll out like chapatis. Heat griddle on medium heat and place one rolled chapati on it. When some brown spots start appearing on the bottom of the chapati, add 1 tsp of oil and flip it over. Cook paratha until both the sides are done, you can also spread some butter over it and  then remove from the heat. Follow the same process with the rest of the balls. Serve missi roti with some pickle or yogurt.
