ICC : Bajra Aloo Roti - Indian Bread

Bajra (Hindi) - Spiked Millet (OR) Pearl Millet (Eng) - Kambu (Tamil) - for my reference! 
Millets are three to five times superior nutritionally to grains like rice/wheat. Millets were our staple food before rice took over. Kambu Kanji is a traditional South Indian food of the peasant, that is cooling to the system. Kambu Pongal and Kambu Kanji are other easy and tasty possibilities with this millet.
Sri Valli gave a choice of Indian Breads for ICC, and I chose to make Tarla Dalal's recipe. 

Bajra Flour - 1/4 cup
Potato - 1, very small
Onion - 1 Tbsp, chopped fine
Coconut, grated - 1 Tbsp
Green Chilli - 1/2, minced
Corriander Leaves - 1 tsp, chopped
Aamchur - 2 pinches
Salt to taste
Garam Masala - 1 pinch

Ghee - 1/2 tsp - to cook the Roti

Microwave the potatoes and grate.
Add a grating of ginger and all the other ingredients. Mix well.
Warm a little water and use it to bind to a soft and firm dough.
Roll out into 2 discs, using a little wheat flour.
Cook on a hot tava, on both sides until brown spots appear, with a dot of ghee for each Roti.
Serve hot with a Sabji of your choice (spicy Pickle) and Curds.


Looks so good. Hope potatoes make it too soft and tasty..

How did you get the green color Meena, is it the green chillies or coriander leaves? Anyway I made them too for ICC and loved it, but I'm leaning more towards besan roti. BTW, can you enable name/url for ease of commenting. Jayanthi(www.sizzlingveggies.com)
