Besan flour flatbread

olivado oil
I am excited to tell all of you I have won a contest by Olivado oils, and won this fabulous gift basket for our favourite way of eating chickpeasThe team at Olivado oils tried my dish and I am happy to know they enjoyed. The picture below is their dish.
olivado chickpeas
I am always happy to hear from all of you especially when I am told that the recipes were tried and enjoyed, makes me feel good about sharing :)

From the first time I tasted this flavourful oil I have enjoyed using it especially because of health reasons and to use it in high smoke points which is really good for stir frying and making rotis. And now I am happy to be sharing this with family and friends.

This besan flour roti (missi roti) is healthy and flavourful.
besan flour roti
1 cup besan flour (gram flour or chickpeas flour)
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 tbsp onion
1 tbsp curry leaves or fresh coriander leaves
1 green chillie chopped
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp oil
1/2 cup warm water
2 tbsp melted ghee or unsalted butter

Mix all the ingredients except water and ghee together. Add water little at a time and make a smooth dough.

Leave it to rest covered for 1/2 hour in an oiled bowl. Make 4 or 6 balls and roll it in a floured board.

Put the rolled roti in a well heated griddle pan in medium high heat. Brush the sides of the roti with melted ghee or oil and cook both sides. The roti will change colour and there will be golden colour spots then turn and cook the other side. Serve it hot with any curry, I served it with kidney beans (rajma) curry.

  8. I am happy for your winnings. I have to get some chickpea flour and make this roti; your photos are great. I don't have fresh curry leaves but grow coriander. I assume it is chopped for the roti.

    Thank You.
