Gavsalli ( Wheat rotis stuffed with rice balls)

Today for the Srivalli's   Cooking from Cookbook Challenge (CCC)  I chose this recipe from a Marathi cookbook  " Draupadichi Thali " .

This paratha recipe is very versatile and though the original recipe calls for wheat flour and rice flour , I have successfully tried it with many other flours like Ragi, Bajra and Jowar in place of rice. The outer cover though should be of wheat only as it gives the needed elasticity to roll the paratha.

This way you can include these healthy cereals in your daily meals. This paratha though looks plain is very soft and goes very well with any veg or non veg gravy . It also tastes yummy with aamras or basundi.

Ingredients :

2 cups.....................wheat flour
2 cup......................rice flour
2 cup.......................water

Method :

Knead a soft but firm dough with the wheat flour, salt and water and keep aside.

Heat 2 cup water in a pan and let it come to boil.

Add to it little salt , 1 /2 tsp oil and the rice flour.

Stir with a spoon so that the rice flour mixes with the hot water.

Cover the pan with a lid and switch off the gas.

After about half an hour knead this rice to form a soft ball.

Make 8 to 10 balls of the wheat dough and the same number of balls with the rice dough.

Now on a roller roll the wheat ball to the size of a small puri and keep the rice ball on it.

Cover the rice ball with the puri completely and now again roll into the shape of a  roti.

Cook it on a tawa on both side as you would normally do for a roti.

These gavsallis can be had with any gravy.
