How to Make Besan Masala Roti

  • Mix all the ingredients together and knead to form a pliable dough.
  • Since the quantity of whole wheat flour used is very less here, you would have to grease your palms to knead the dough properly.
  • Keep your palms oily to avoid its sticking to your hands.
  • Roll the prepared balls into chappathi and roast them on a heated griddle on low flame.
  • This is very important to keep the flame medium else the inner layer of the roti will not be cooked properly.
  • If you are applying oil, roast it with 1 tsp oil/ghee on each side till it turns a bit brownish on the sides and crispy in between.
  • It takes longer than the usual paratha/ roti to get this one cooked.
  • Serve hot with raita and side dish of your choice.
