Jowar and bajra flour rotis flavoured with spring onions and green chilli. Jowar and bajra are rich in iron, protein and fibre. Being comparatively dry this roti is recommended for your first trimester as a it will relieve you of nausea. Have it as a mid morning snack or for lunch with the Usali.

Preparation Time : 5 mins.
Cooking Time : 20 mins.

Makes 4 rotis.

Ingredients
1/2 cup bajra flour (black millet flour)
1/2 cup jowar flour (white millet flour)
1 spring onion, finely chopped
1 green chilli, finely chopped
1 tablespoon oil
salt to taste
Method
1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and knead into a soft dough, using warm water as required.
2. Cover and keep aside for 10 minutes.
3. Divide the dough into 4 equal portions.
4. Pat each portion on a dry surface using your palms till it is a circle of 125 mm. (5″) diameter.
5. Cook on a tava (griddle) till both sides are lightly browned. Repeat for the remaining circles.
6. Serve hot with a vegetable of your choice.
Tips
If you want to roll out these rotis instead of patting them, you can do so between 2 sheets of plastic. It is much easier that way.
