Missi Roti / Parantha is a Rajasthani and Punjabi delicacy and are made using wheat flour with chickpea flour (Besan) along with spices. They are really delicious and I always have them when we eat out at few restaurants. Making them is not really tough if we knead the dough of right consistency. This time i had few veggies lying in fridge and had planned to use them wisely and what I planned was a missi roti but I ended up with a new version of it: Missi Roti/ Parantha with vegetables. Nothing difficult if it sounds so. I had veggies like cauliflower, beetroot and Carrot. Grated them all, added wheat flour(one portion), Besan (two portions) and spices. Honestly the ratio of flour varies and I like when besan is more than whet flour. It becomes more soft with this ratio. You may change the ratios as per your comfort. Water as required and knead the dough. Leave it to rest for around 15 min. If its sticky, which is possible as vegetables leave water, use Ghee while kneading. I made fresh Missi paranthas but you can always make a Roti. It is served with Aloo tamatar ki subji or with dal tadka.
Since Missi roti has low glycaemic index, it is a wonder food for managing diabetes. It is low in carbohydrates and high in proteins. Those who are diabetic, please remove beetroot from this recipe as beetroot has high suagr. Those who are looking for a diet plan, it is a damn neat choice. I have always preferred a Besan based breakfast and trust me it keeps you full for longer and you dont go for those unhealthy snacks.
I am going to have these scrumptious Missi Paranthas loaded with vegetables with my favourite Nimbu ka achar. What are you going to have it with??
And Yes dont forget to top it with desi ghee.. You would come back and tell me that you loved it.
Do share your experience with me.
