Paushtik Bajre Ki Roti


  • Millet flour (bajre ka atta)
    1 cup
  • Whole wheat flour (atta)
    1/4 cup
  • Salt
    to taste
  • Onion grated
    1 medium
  • Carrot grated
    1 medium
  • Green chillies finely chopped
  • Carom seeds (ajwain)
    1 teaspoon


Step 1

Sieve bajra flour, atta and salt together. Add onion, carrot, green chillies and carom seeds. Add water, a little at a time and knead into medium soft dough. Do not knead the dough excessively. Divide the dough into eight equal portions and roll them into balls (pedas).

Step 2

Wet your palms with water, take a portion of dough and pat it between your palms to make thin rotis of about four to five inch diameter.

Step 3

Make them as thin as possible. It takes some practice before you can make thin bajra rotis. Heat a non-stick tawa and place a roti on it.

Step 4

First cook one side for about half a minute on medium heat and then flip it over and cook the other side similarly.

Step 5

Reduce heat and cook on slow heat on both sides till the bajra roti is slightly browned. Repeat the same method with the remaining dough.
