Methi Missi Roti (Flat Bread with Fenugreek Leaves)


          This is a very easy, simple and a traditional roti that is very popular in Punjab and Rajasthan. It is generally prepared with whole wheat flour, combined with besan, chopped fenugreek leaves, onion, green chilies, yoghurt and other dry spices. 

          Very tasty and equally nutritious, they can be relished any time of the day with either yoghurt, pickles or just plain butter. They are an ideal lunch box meal too. Please check for a step by step method with pictures to prepare it.





  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup roasted chickpea flour / besan
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp. red chili flakes
  • 1 tsp. carom seeds (ajwain)
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp. coriander powder
  • 1/4 tsp. asafoetida
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tbsp. oil to knead
  • 2 cups chopped fenugreek leaves
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1-2 green chilies, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. yoghurt
  • oil to shallow fry





          In a bowl take all the ingredients (except oil to shallow fry) and mix everything well. Add required quantity of water, little at a time and knead into a soft dough. Cover and keep aside for 30 minutes.

          Divide the dough into equal portions (I could make 9 rotis out of it). Take each portion and roll out into a circle by dusting some flour. 

          Heat 1 tsp. oil in a tawa / gridde and shallow fry the chapattis one at a time till they are well fried on both sides. Brush some more oil if required.

          Fry the remaining rotis in the similar way and serve them hot with either yoghurt, pickle or butter.
