Roti – Multigrain spring onion
The latest dietary guidelines advise us to eat at least three servings of whole grains every day, which can help prevent things like heart disease, certain cancers, and type 2 diabetes. In other words, at least half of all the grains that you eat should be whole grain.
Whole grains are generally good sources of dietary fiber; most refined (processed) grains contain little fiber. Dietary fiber from whole grains, as part of an overall healthy diet, helps reduce blood cholesterol levels and may lower risk of heart disease. Fiber containing foods such as whole grains help provide a feeling of fullness with fewer calories and so may help with weight management.

• Grease a foil/ parchment paper grease with oil take a orange sized dough and pat it evenly with your hand to a thin circle.( wet your hands in-between with water to ease the patting.
• Heat a griddle, transfer the rolled roti on to the tava cooked for 30sec and carefully flip to the other side and cook

• Repeat the same with the remaining dough.
