Missi Roti

We asian are very fond of our breads, those we don’t use yeast much in our bread. The variety is countless, roti, chapati, paratha, nan and puris.

Today i will be sharing with you a simple Roti flavored with herbs and spices, called Missi Roti. This roti is very common in northern part of India. Some call it paratha as well. As we use oil/ghee while cooking it.

I normally give this roti in breakfast along with yogurt and pickle. But like any kid my daughters refers it Nutella.

I had cooked Palak Mushroom Malai the other day, instead making plain paratha I decided to make missi roti to serve with it.

It is a prefect dish for your little one snack box in school.


2 cup Whole Wheat Flour

1 cup Gram Flour

1 tbsp Kasuri Methi

1/2tsp Red Chili Powder

1/4 tsp turmeric powder

2 tsp coriander leaves

1 Onion finely chopped

1/2 tsp ajwain

Salt as per taste

Oil for cooking


Mix all the ingredients and make soft dough by adding a little water at a time. Don’t make it wet.

Thoroughly knead the dough like we do for rotis and let it rest for 20 minutes. Add 2 tbsp oil and knead again.

With help of some dry flour make small balls out of this dough.

Roll out rotis from these balls.

Cook it on tava when galf done smear little oil and tava fry it until it gets color on both the sides.

Serve with dahi, achar or any sabji. I am sure kids will love with nutella as well 😃
