Methi Ginger Roti

My first experiment with container gardening started with basil, mint, corriander and methi.Among these I loved methi the most as it was very fast growing and beautiful in the small container.This sunday in my curiosity to try this recipe I had to bid farewell to my magnificient methi.


So here goes the recipe for the flavourful healthy low calorie roti…….

wheat flour – 1.5 cups

rice flour – 3/4 cup

fine rawa – 1/2

roasted gram flour -1 tbsp

finely chopped onions – 1/2 cup

chopped methi leaves – 1/2 cup

green chilli paste – 1 tsp

strained ginger juice from 1/4 inch piece

salt – 2.5 tsp

Mix all the dry ingredients with 1 Tbsp of oil.Add the ginger juice and knead to stiff dough with just enough water.Divide the dough into small balls and make rotis.

Enjoy it with corriander/mint chutney.

This is a recipe by Mrs.Mallika Badrinath

    Hi ArSu,
    Got here after reading your latest comment at Vee’s blog. I am sure you’ll enjoy being an active food blogger. As for this post, I think, a picture of your homegrown Methi would have been nice here. Btw, ginger juice is an interesting twist.
