Missi Roti is a speciality of Rajasthan and Punjab made with chickpea flour and wheat flour.

This Roti is cooked in Tandoor and heaped with a heavy amount of ghee over it. Due to the heavy dose of ghee in the Roti, it is good to eat in winters.

The Roti is not just a combination of chickpea flour and wheat flour, but the carefully chosen blend of spices, ginger makes it tastier.

The dough is kneaded in curd, and not in water to give it a softer texture.

This Restaurant Style Missi Roti is very easy to make and you can add this Roti for special occasions in your house too.

The Roti is so delicious and can be paired with any curry of your choice. Though, members of my family are vegetarian, so I usually make a curry of either paneer or mushroom with this Roti. But, you can make Non-Vegetarian curries too. I am sure, this Roti will not fail with Non-Veg Curries.

Ingredients Used

Missi Roti can be easily prepared at home and that too, with all regular ingredients available at home such as wheat flour, chickpea flour, cornflour, carrom seeds, Kasuri methi, turmeric powder, red chilly powder, salt as per taste, ghee and curd.

Authentically, ghee is used in Missi Rotis, but if you want to avoid it, you can use refined oil too. But, in my suggestion, you shouldn’t skip ghee as ghee is really very good for digestion as well as good for muscles too.

This Roti does not need much effort to make. So, can be easily made for lunch or whenever you want to surprise your guest with some different menu, you can prepare this Indian bread with some raita and pickle.

Without wasting much more time, let’s move to step by step recipe. It needs only a few steps and tan-tana, magic will happen.

Step by Step Recipe

In a large bowl, add chickpea flour(besan), wheat flour, and cornflour.

In the same bowl, add all the spices. i.e. turmeric powder, red chilly powder, carrom seeds, salt as per taste, chopped green chilies, chopped coriander leaves. Mix well.

Now add ghee and curd.

Knead the mixture into a soft dough. And cover the dough for 30minutes with a kitchen towel, so that the moisture remains in the dough.

After 30minutes, divide the dough into 6 small balls.

Roll the ball into Rotis, and apply water on the top of the roti with your finger.

Place the roti with the waterside down on the heated Tawa.

Turn the Tawa upside down and cook the roti, until some brown spots appear on the roti. Remember to keep moving the Tawa. This will give the same effect as Tandoor and the roti will taste the same. You can directly cook the roti on Tawa like you cook your normal Rotis. But for the same essence and texture the tandoor does, I am cooking Rotis like this. Keep the flame low.

Turn the Tawa and cook the roti for a minute and apply ghee on the top. Serve hot.

Hello all.
Thank you for stopping by on SheWritesFood. It is basically a blog page on the vivid delicacies of India and the other corners of the globe.
My name is Pooja Mahto and this is my little space of the social world.
Indigenously, I'm from Bihar but currently living in Uttarakhand. I'm the sole handler and creator of this page.
I started cooking way back during my teen days as a casual hobby. Little did I know that it will turn out into a passion that I'll live and breathe each day.
As with life, whatever I have learned inside the kitchen is through repeated mistakes and misfortunes but the one thing which kept me going was my love for the flavours.
Cooking is anything but tedious. It is not only a basic necessity of life but also one of the most imaginative activities that a human finger can do.
My reason for starting this blog is pure and simple, my sheer love for cooking. The fun of experimenting with the various flavours and then waiting with bated breath for its veracity is truly magical.
I was a rookie when I started and I don't think that I have reached my destination. However, despite the failures, I have been able to enjoy the journey with complete acceptance. All this has been possible only because of my passion and understanding of the craft of cooking.
My Mumma has been a pillar all through the way, right from teaching me how to stir a dish to bake a cake. She has been my confidant and inspiration to keep going and to keep trying.
My goal is to share my recipes and experiences with you all so that you can go and try the same. There is no better feeling that to cook a dish with all your heart and soul and then listen to all the ravings by your loved ones.
