Missi roti is Indian flat bread which has a distinct texture and lot more flavours than the regular roti or chapatti. It is often ordered at the restaurant and dhabas. Although it is super easy and simple to make at home! I never liked the missi rotis served at restaurants or dhabas because I found them too dry. So I thought of making a softer version of the missi rotis. This recipe gives very flavourful and soft missi roti. Missi roti can be served with any spicy Indian gravies, however, their favourite accompaniment is dals. Do try this recipe as it is

Recipe for soft missi roti
Missi roti calls for whole wheat flour and gram flour. It is the ratio of these two that is critical. There are recipes using the two flours in equal proportion. However I have used 2 parts of whole wheat flour and 1 part of gram flour.
There are a number of ways of flavouring missi roti. A number of spices as well as fresh ingredients can be added. I have used carom seeds, red chili powder, cumin seeds, dry fenugreek leaves to flavour missi roti. Amongst the fresh ingredients, I have used onions and coriander. To make the rotis soft I have added little oil as well as yogurt.
