Wheat roti or phulka is our staple food. My family wants to eat what roti/ chapati / phulka twice a day. Only wheat roti cannot give all the required nutrients to the body. So I tend to add some extra grain flours to our regular roti to make it healthier and tastier.
Reducing the quantity of wheat flour and replacing it with other healthy flours like Jowar, Bajra, Soybean, Rice and Raagi is the key to have all the vitamins.
As it contains all these healthy flours’ mixture, the combination makes roti tastier and healthier.
Wheat Flour 3/4 cup
Raagi flour 1/4 cup (Can opt for Raagi Sattva)
Bajra flour 2-3 teaspoons
Rice Flour 2-3 teaspoons
Soybean flour 1-2 teaspoons
Jowar (Sorghum) Flour 2-3 teaspoons
Salt as per taste
1 teaspoon cumin/jeera powder
Ghee/oil to knead the dough
2 teaspoon grated paneer/cottage cheese (Optional)
2 teaspoon grated cheese (optional)
Water as required for kneading the dough
Ghee/butter to roast the rotis
Mix Wheat flour, Raagi flour / Sattva, Bajra Flour, cheese, paneer salt, and cumin powder together.
Add little ghee.
Now add water and knead a soft dough.
Grease the dough with few drops of ghee.
Let the dough rest for 10 minutes.
Now make medium sized balls of the dough and roll the rotis as per the desired size.
Now roast the rotis from both the side and apply ghee or butter to make them softer.
Serve hot with any subzi. Or give it to kids tiffin.
(Kids do love the paneer and cheese addition, and it makes the roti softer than the plain ones).
My daughter likes to eat this roti as it is without any accompaniments. And this roti keeps me free of worries of the nutrition she needs at this growing age. Kids need more calories so adding cheese or paneer fulfills that need too.
