What is Besan Masala Roti?

Healthy and flavorful flatbread made with gram flour and whole wheat flour, from the state of Haryana, is besan masala roti. It is flavored with the most basic spices and fresh ingredients. It is a popular breakfast recipe in Haryana. Most of the people kick start their day with Indian recipes such as besan masala roti, makhhan, and meethi lassi and kachri ki chutney. It can also be a veg dinner menu if served with any sabji or dal.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Besan Masala Roti

Different types of rotis are prepared in the Indian kitchen. Even paratha is a popular breakfast recipe and parathas with yogurt and chutney make such easy dinners. But parathas are shallow fried and not always one is in the mood to indulge in something shallow fried. Besan masala roti works very well in such case. It is prepared without any oil or ghee, although served with white butter but it would taste equally scrumptious with chutney and lassi too if you want to skip that butter. Following is all you need to make besan masala roti:

Gram flour/besan and wheat four/atta: This roti is a combination of these two flours. Besan or gram flour is the main ingredient. Two parts of gram flour and 1 part of whole wheat flour is ideally used to make it. However, I have used equal proportions of both the flours.

Fresh ingredients: Onion, green chili, fresh coriander leaves pep up the besan roti.

Spices: Salt, red chili powder, turmeric powder, and coriander powder are used to spice up this roti.

Yogurt: Little yogurt is added which gives the roti its softness. No oil or ghee has been used for the dough or for frying.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
