Ingredients for Paushtik Bajre Ki Roti Recipe

  • Millet Flour 1 cup

  • Whole wheat Flour 1/4 cup

  • Salt to taste

  • Onion grated 1 medium

  • Carrot grated 1 medium

  • Green chillies finely chopped 2

  • Carom seeds (ajwain) 1 teaspoon


Step 1

Sieve bajra flour, atta and salt together. Add onion, carrot, green chillies and carom seeds. Add water, a little at a time and knead into medium soft dough. Do not knead the dough excessively. Divide the dough into eight equal portions and roll them into balls (pedas).

Step 2

Wet your palms with water, take a portion of dough and pat it between your palms to make thin rotis of about four to five inch diameter.

Step 3

Make them as thin as possible. It takes some practice before you can make thin bajra rotis. Heat a non-stick tawa and place a roti on it.

Step 4

First cook one side for about half a minute on medium heat and then flip it over and cook the other side similarly.

Step 5

Reduce heat and cook on slow heat on both sides till the bajra roti is slightly browned. Repeat the same method with the remaining dough.
