Missi Roti


          This is a very easy, simple and a traditional roti that is very popular in the regions of Punjab and Rajasthan. It is generally prepared with besan (gram flour), whole wheat flour, chopped onion, green chiles and other dry spices. Greens may be added for additional flavour. I added some dried mint leaves. Fresh leaves may be substituted according to individual preference. 

          Very tasty and equally nutritious, they are ideal to be had anytime of the day, accompanied with any side dish, raita, pickles, plain yoghurt or butter. They also serves as a tea-time snack and a lunch box meal too. Please check for a step by step method with pictures to prepare it.





  • 1 cup besan
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tsp. oil
  • 1/2 tsp. ajwain (carrom seeds)
  • 1/4 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1 tbsp. crushed dried mint leaves (opt)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1-2 green chilies, chopped
  • oil to shallow fry
  • any side dish to serve






          In a bowl, mix all the above mentioned ingredients (except oil to fry). Add required quantity of water and knead into a dough. Cover and keep aside for 15-20 minutes.

          Divide into 4-5 equal portions. Roll out each ball of dough into a disc, like the shape of a chapatti by dusting some flour. Use up all the remaining dough too.

          Heat a tawa / griddle and shallow fry them one at a time by drizzling some oil. Transfer to a serving plate and relish them hot with any side dish, raita, plain yoghurt, pickles or butter.
