Hi everyone!! Hope you still remember this almost abandoned blog. I keep thinking that i should start blogging regularly, but never happens. With all the things going on right now, the blog takes the backseat as always. We have relocated and the commute to work has increased. So, i'm trying to get used to the new routine, new place, etc. End of march, i travelled to London and Chennai to visit family and on the way back i got my mom with me. The last two times my mom came here was when i had my boys and it was hectic for her taking care of us and also the kitchen .This time i thought i should not let her enter the kitchen, but work got way too hectic and i had some issues with my hand and as usual, she ended up taking care of me (us). I could only make something for her once in a while. One day, i made this spicy roti, which was already tried and tested before she came. She loved it. I hope you all like it too.
Wheat flour : 2 cups
Besan + Oatmeal : 1 cup
Salt to taste
Red chilli powder : 1 spoon
Onion - 1 large (finely chopped)
Spinach/Methi leaves - 1 small bunch (finelly chopped)
Water : as required
Turmeric powder - few pinches (optional)
Method : Mix all the ingredients except water and set it aside for few minutes. Add water little by little and make it into a pliable dough. Cover it and keep it aside for 1 hour. Divide the dough into small discs/ balls and pat them in wheat flour and roll them into thick rotis. Cook it in a hot tawa for approximately 30 seconds. Flip and apply few drops of oil. Cook for another 45 secs to 1 min - basically it should be cooked well and golden brown. Flip again and apply oil on the other side. Both sides should be golden brown.
Hi after a long time.
