One evening, when I looked at the contents of my pantry, I found so many flours which have not been used very often. When I was searching for recipes using these flours, my cousin who has a diabetic at home, suggested that I make rotis with all the mixed flours which she apparently makes at home. Thats when I decided to give it a shot. I observed that these rotis were soft when warm but they were not so great for the next day. Also because of the presence of so many flours, we were full very soon and a good meal for a diabetic for sure!! Feel free to add or remove any flour(s) for a different taste and texture. I think limiting the number of flours to 3-4 varieties would be a good balance.

Kasoori Methi 1 Tbsp
Salt to taste
Water as needed to knead a stiff dough

Method Of Preparation - 


In a mixing bowl, add all the ingredients and knead well adding warm water as needed to knead a stiff dough. 

Cover the dough for about 10-15 min.

Make about 12 equal portions of the dough, roll out rotis. Generously use flour for dusting while rolling out the rotis. 

On a hot tawa, gently place the roti after dusting off the extra four. After small bubbles appear, flip on to the other side and after a few seconds, I put it on a perforated phulka stand and put it on the flame. The roti then puffs out (if properly rolled out!) like a ball. Then remove it from the phulka stand and store it in an insulated container. Continue for the rest of the dough.
Multi Grain Roti

If the phulka stand is not available, the roti can be puffed by gently pressing with a clean kitchen towel on the sides of the roti too. Or if you have a gas stove, then it can be directly puffed on the flame (but have to be cautious).

Serve warm with any curry and enjoy !

  4. I like the way you are breaking down the nutritional information of the ingredients used in a recipe!

    My mom also mixes 3-4 flours to make roti for herself. I don't the flours she uses though. She is diabetic.
