Aloo Methi Bajra Roti

I prepared these rotis for our dinner somedays back  but couldn't post the recipe . They are very similar to Methi theplas but addition of bajra makes them more healthy whereas potatoes make them soft . They make a good pair with any dry or gravy dish or simply with achar and bundi raita. This calcium(methi) &  iron (bajra ) combo is very tasty and healthy treat for growing children.




Ingredients :

1 bowl ..................finely chopped methi leaves
2 .....................potatoes boiled peeled and grated
1 bowl ..................bajra flour
As needed................wheat flour
1 tbsp........................chilly, ginger, garlic paste
2 tsp ...........................dhana jeera pd
2 tsp............................turmeric pd
Salt as needed









Method :

Knead a dough by combining all the above ingredients .
Don't keep it for long of it will start releasing water.
Within 5 to 10 minutes of kneading the dough roll out the rotis.












Cook them on tawa by smearing ghee or butter on both sides.
Serve hot with any chutney , ketchup or any gravy vegetable dish of your choice.

    1. Dear Meena,

      thanks for ur comment on my post, as for ur doubt the mixture doesn't become sticky because bajra flour has a little rough texture. if we add besan (chana flour then the mixture may get sticky. btw i rolled out these rotis in similar way like we roll chapatis.
