Rotis are a staple of the Indian diet but do pack a lot of carbohydrates into a meal. I wanted to come up with a way to add more fiber, protein and good Omega-3 fats to a roti. Here is a version that is hearty and delicious! It does not inflate like a typical wheat roti, but cooks on a traditional tawa (cast iron pan or skillet) flat. Just make sure to cook well on both sides. Enjoy!
Ingredients for dough (makes 13 rotis):
1 cup King Arthur whole wheat flour
1/2 cup almond meal
1/2 cup garbanzo flour (channa atta)
2 tablespoons flax seed meal
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup warm water
1. Mix all the ingredients together. Then slowly add water and knead. May need a little (1-2 tablespoons) water at end to get all the dry dough.
2. Make into balls, roll out thin and cook like a normal roti.
3. Cook on both sides on medium heat to thoroughly cook through, but not burn.
