Spinach roti ~ MBP March 2007


Rolling it out… Here comes another entry for MBP March 2007. I found this recipe at Maa Inti Vanta. It was very easy to make and tasted good too. Here is my version.
Spinach roti

Ingredients
1 cup of frozen spinach
Wheat Flour - 2 cups
Besan - 2 tbsp
Cumin powder - 2 tbsp
Chilli Powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Curd - 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Fat-free canola oil spray

Method
1. Thaw the spinach in the microwave and set aside in a bowl.
2. Put the wheat flour in a bowl and add the besan, cumin powder, chilli powder, turmeric powder and salt and knead using curd and water. Set aside for 1/2 hour to one hour.

3. Roll out the rotis and place on a heated tawa.

4. Once slightly roasted spray the fat-free oil spray and turn to the other side. Repeat the process.
5. Serve hot with yogurt or any simple curry.


Kitchen notes:
1. The original recipe calls for ajwain. I did not have it on hand. Do add it if you have it in your pantry. It adds flavor to the rotis.
2. You can use ghee to roast the rotis.

Hi Lakshmik
You can get in supermarkets. It has no flavor, so we can actually smell & taste the spices which comes from the curry without the taste of oil.
Its good for frying too as it can withstand high heat when cooking.

Cheers
