I had bought one amaranth seeds packet a few months back to make my favorite ladoos. But I haven't yet tried to do so. I was wondering what else I could do with these rajgira seeds. Got the idea to grind these seeds into powder and then make rotis with it. Voila! My experiment worked again.
Thanks to rajgira flour, I did not find the dough sticky and it was easy to roll out chapatis.
Let's get to the recipe for vrat roti or amaranth-singhara/kuttu roti:
1/2 cup- amaranth flour
1/2 cup- kuttu or singhara atta
salt as per taste
water - as required
Oil - for roasting the rotis
- Mix everything well, except water.
- We will need little water for the dough.
- Make a soft dough.
- Make lemon-size balls of dough and roll out chapatis with hand.
- Do not try to make thin rotis. These will be little thick.
- Put on tawa. Roast one side with little ghee.
- Then roast next side.
- Enjoy with aloo and rajgira kadhi. I made dhaniya-pudina chutney as well, with no onion, garlic.
