missi roti recipe, how to make punjabi missi roti recipe

missi roti recipe with step by step photos – punjabi missi roti or flat breads made with whole wheat flour (atta), gram flour and spices.

missi roti is a north indian speciality and is often made in various homes in the north indian belt. i am sharing this family recipe which i have been making for some years now.

the proportion of whole wheat flour to besan added varies from family to family. we always use a 2:1 proportion of both whole wheat flour and gram flour respectively. we always add onions. with onions the rotis taste good. if you do not want to add onions, then you can add fenugreek leaves, spinach or grated veggies like carrots or beetroot.

i have already shared a variation of missi roti made with fenugreek leaves – methi missi roti recipe. other similar recipes are methi thepla, rava cheela. moong dal cheela and besan chilla recipe.

missi roti can be served with a dal, aloo sabzi, matar sabzi or even a mango pickle or curd or butter. i usually make the rotis for breakfast and serve with mango pickle. these rotis have to be served hot as on cooling they become slightly dense.
