Methi Multigrain Roti

Methi Roti3

Multigrain includes several types of grains. In this recipe I used Oats, Millet flour, Jowar flour and wheat flour. This is a healthy alternative to regular wheat chapati.

Serves: 6 – 8
Preparation time: 15 – 20 minutes
Resting time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 15-20 minutes

• Chopped Fenugreek (methi) leaves-2cup
• Wheat flour-1/2cup
• Jowar (Sorghum) flour-1/4cup
• Bajra (Millet)flour-1/4cup
• Powdered oats-1/4cup
• Finely chopped Green Chilli -2
• Ginger garlic paste-1tsp
• Carom seeds-1tsp
• Salt-as per taste
• Hot water-1- 1.5 cup

• Heat oil in a pan and saute chopped methi leaves until the water content reduces
• In a bowl combine all flours, Carom seeds, Salt, Green Chilli, Ginger garlic paste and the fried methi. Mix until it form a soft dough adding little by little water .Set aside for 15-20 minutes covered
• Divide the dough into equal parts and round up to the lemon sized balls
• Roll them to 5-6 inch diameter circle- add some dry flour while rolling the dough
• Heat the tawa. Placed the rolled Rotis on the hot tawa and cook for a minute or so. Flip over and continue to cook on the other side until golden brown softs appears. (You can also brush some oil if desired)
• Remove from the pan and serve hot with Raita

• Adding warm water to the dough makes chapathis soft
• You can add butter while roasting chapthis instead of oil
• You can make same using only wheat flour instead of multigrain flour

  5. Hi..I just love all your recipes…love the fact that they are healthy and easy to prepare…made the chickpea pavbhaji today and absolutely loved it..pls keep posting


    • Sital – I am so blessed to hear such compliments and encouragement for the work. This comes when I am due to celebrate my first blogiversary tommorow (18th Apr)….Look forward to your continued support


  6. I’ve been looking for a chapati recipe – this one looks perfect. Thank you!


  7. You got me with the ginger garlic paste, I’ll be a fan for life, but would you mind if i just call them multi-grain tortillas. Living in Mexico we do make a multi-grain tortilla but I have never added the ginger-garlic paste and I am a very big fan of both. The Fenugreek takes them to a whole different level….I must try these as soon as I can get all the ingredients together.
