Lehsun ki roti

Most people are apprehensive to use garlic as a predominant flavour in their cooking. This aromatic herb is not only good for reducing cholesterol but it actually aids in digestion and also stimulates the production of breast milk.
Unfortunately fresh green garlic is available for only a few months in the year. So if you are making these rotis in the summer, use 4 to 6 large cloves of grated garlic instead of the green garlic and add some fresh coriander leaves to add some colour to the rotis.

Preparation Time : 10 mins.
Cooking Time : 30 mins.

Makes 8 rotis.

Ingredients
1/2 cup jowar flour (white millet flour)
1/2 cup bajra flour (black millet flour)
1/2 cup whole wheat flour (gehun ka atta)
1/2 cup fresh green garlic, chopped
salt to taste
Other ingredients
2 tablespoons oil for cooking
Method
1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and knead into a dough adding warm water as required. This dough will not be very pliable and you will not be able to knead it very much.
2. Divide the dough into 8 equal portions and roll out each portion into circles approx. 100 mm. to 125 mm. (4″ to 5″) in diameter.
3. Cook each roti on a tava (griddle) using a little oil till both sides are golden brown.
4. Serve hot.
