Missi roti step-by-step recipe with photos.
Missi roti is a healthy gram and wheat flour flatbread with flavours of freshly roasted spices. This popular flatbread from the Indian states of Punjab and Rajasthan is an excellent variation for the regular roti/chapati. Both Punjabi and Rajasthani versions are subtly different in terms of flavouring. The gram flour gives these rotis their unique flavour and sets it apart from the regular whole wheat rotis.
The main flavour for this dish comes from freshly roasted spices - cumin seeds, coriander seeds, and peppercorn. To make this dish, I mix gram and wheat flour with onion, chilli, yogurt, and freshly ground spices. I then roll and cook them like regular chapatis.
A great variation to this dish is methi missi roti, in which either fresh or dried fenugreek leaves are added to the dough. It tastes very similar to the Gujarati thepla. Missi rotis are great for lunch boxes too as they stay soft for a longer time. Simple delicious flatbread that tastes great at any time of the day.
