With a slight modification, add poha to the traditional "Missi Roti Recipe" to make the dish more flavorful and crunchy. Indian bread known as "missi roti" is made from a mixture of wheat and gram flour and is seasoned with fresh local herbs and spices. Here, the recipe is slightly twisted by including poha (flattened rice) as an additional ingredient. This is just one of several missi roti versions you can make by including green leafy vegetables like methi (fenugreek leaves), spinach (palak), onions, and other things.
Let's get started with this simple, step-by-step recipe for Poha missi roti.
- 2 cups of whole wheat flour (atta)
- 1 cup of gram flour (besan)
- 1/2 cup poha (soak and drained)
- One chopped green chilli (optional)
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds (jeera),
- 1/4 teaspoon red chilli powder
- ½ teaspoon turmeric powder
- 2 tablespoon chopped coriander leaves,
- A pinch of Garam masala powder, and
- A dash of salt to taste
- Add 2 teaspoons of oil to the dough.
- 1/2 to 3/4 cup water
- Ghee or oil to fry the rotis
- First, wash the poha and soak it for about 10 minutes in warm water. The surplus water can then be squeezed out and set aside. Squeeze the water out completely.
- Combine the flours, such as wheat and gram flour, with the soaked poha and the remaining ingredients, such as jeera, Indian spices, and chopped coriander leaves. Mix everything thoroughly.
- Add a little water and begin forming the dough. If the dough is too soft, you won't be able to roll it like chapati dough. Give the dough 15 to 20 minutes to rest.
- Now form medium-sized balls from the dough. Roll out the dough balls into medium-sized circular chapatis after they are lightly dusted by flouring the work surface.
- After cooking one side of the rolled roti over a hot tava or griddle, flip it over and cook the other side. Spread some ghee or oil on both sides and cook the food until it is done and browned.
- Serve the poha missi roti with mango pickle, yogurt, white butter, sweet lassi, or fresh juice, hot or warm.
