Missi Roti are exquisite and nutty enhanced flatbreads made with a blend of entire wheat flour, gram flour and flavors. Missi roti is a North Indian forte and is much of the time made in different homes in the North Indian belt. I’m sharing my family recipe that I have been making for a long time now.
Missi roti is otherwise called besan roti as besan a.k.a gram flour is one of the key fixings. Besan confers a pleasant nutty flavor to the roti. It additionally helps in making the roti marginally fresh.
There are a few varieties of this recipe. Certain individuals additionally make it into layered fresh and flaky missi roti. In any case, we make it into a basic round roti and not the layered form. Anyway to create a firm layered variant then you can really take a look at this Paratha Recipe or Lachha Paratha for reference.
We generally add onions to the mixture. With onions, the roti tastes great. To add onions, then you can add fenugreek leaves, spinach or ground veggies like carrots or beetroot. The expansion of veggies will make these rotis more solid and an effective method for remembering the veggies for the eating routine of children who could do without them.
To makes these besan ki roti, the extent of entire wheat flour to besan added shifts from one family to another. We generally utilize a 2:1 extent of both entire wheat flour and gram flour individually.
Missi roti can be presented with a dal, aloo sabzi, matar sabzi or even a mango pickle or curd or margarine.
I for the most part make them for breakfast and present with mango pickle or lemon pickle. These rotis must be served hot as on cooling they become marginally thick.
Certain individuals mistake missi roti for Thepla. Despite the fact that the mixture arrangement appears to be comparative yet both these dishes are unique. Curd is constantly added to the thepla batter which gives it a marginally tart taste. In any case, curd isn’t added to the missi roti mixture.
