Ajwaini Roti

Ajwaini Rotis

These rotis last longer and ajwain keeps away stomach related problems. Hence they are recommended for picnics / long journeys.

Makes: 6

You will need

1 cup (200 g) whole wheat flour (gehun ka atta)
1 teaspoon ghee
1/2 teaspoon salt
100 ml + 1 teaspoon warm milk
1 teaspoon ajwain (carom seeds)
6 - 8 teaspoon ghee / oil


Mix atta / flour, 1 teaspoon ghee, salt and ajwain.

Add milk and knead into a smooth dough.

Do not add extra water / milk when making dough. Set aside in an airtight container for half an hour.

Divide the dough into 6 equal portions / balls.

Roll out into thin chapatis of 6 - inch diameter.

Place a non - stick frying pan / griddle / tawa on heat. Place a roti on the frying pan / tawa and cook for few seconds until little bubbles appear.

Turn over and cook for 1/2 minute or until brown specks appear. Cook each side for 1/2 minute and remove from tawa.

Apply little oil / ghee on both sides of the roti and stack them on top of each other. Serve with green chutney / farsan / pickle.
