Ragi Jowar Pyaaz Phudina Roti

Ragi Jowar Pyaaz Phudina roti is a delicious roti made with combination of flours such as finger or red millet (ragi/nachni) flour, sorghum (jowar) flour, chickpea flour and whole wheat flour. Onion and mint leaves are added to give extra flavor to the roti. This roti goes well with curry or dal, and can also be eaten for breakfast with yogurt and pickle. It is packed with rich nutrients from all the flour. It is vegan if you do not use ghee while roasting the rotis.

At my house, we prefer eating roti made from different flours. So I usually cook

chawal ki roti, – Made from rice flour

bajri ki roti, –  made from pearl millet (bajri) flour

makki ki roti – made from maize (makkai) flour

jowar roti, – made from sorghum flour

missi roti, – made from chickpea flour

ragi roti, – made from finger or red millet (ragi) flour

rajigira roti – roti made from amaranth flour (made during upwaas/fast).

or make combination with different flours and cook.

I have always different kind of flours stocked in my pantry. Our bodies gets benefited with the nutrients available from  different flour. Also we can enjoy different taste. My son also likes to eat them. He will enjoy them with subji or curry or sometimes with jaggery and ghee or butter. I am happy that he is adapting the taste derived from different flours. It is difficult in kids to get used to the taste and texture of the roti made using different flour.

Ragi, jowar, chickpea, rice, maize, bajri  flour are gluten free and hence roti will become dry after they are cooled. It is best to eat them hot and fresh. Personally, I like the dry texture of the roti. I eat the left over with peanut butter.

I thus add little whole wheat flour  when making roti using the gluten free flour to get a little softness. But I do not add whole wheat flour when cooking chawal ki roti. If you want to make gluten free roti then you have to skip adding whole wheat flour.

Earlier people in the villages use to grind  the flour fresh daily and make roti from it. The roti made from the fresh flours would taste better and will be softer. But nowadays we get these different flours packed in the departmental stores. I feel they are not that fresh and hence I prefer adding whole wheat flour to them while making roti to make the roti soft in texture.

The rotis  can be flavored with different ingredients such as onion, tomato, coriander, fenugreek leaves, potato, sweet potato, or with spinach or paneer. You can add the spices as per your taste. Try making the rotis by experimenting with different ingredients.

Ragi is good source of iron and calcium.
