Nutritious bajra rotis stuffed with a spicy chawli (long beans) and garlic filling makes a meal in itself. They go very well with chaas and all kinds of spicy pickles. Whole wheat flour is added to the bajra flour to make it easier to roll out the rotis. Enjoy these stuffed rotis for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Cooking Time : 10 mins.
Preparation Time : 15 mins.

Makes 2 rotis.

For the bajra rotis
½ cup bajra flour (millet flour)
2 tablespoons whole wheat flour (gehun ka atta)
1 teaspoon oil
salt to taste
For the stuffing
1 cup chawli (long beans), finely chopped
3 to 4 green chillies, chopped
1 tablespoon garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped coriander
a pinch asafoetida (hing)
2 teaspoons oil
salt to taste
Other ingredients
ghee or oil for cooking
For the bajra rotis
1. Mix the bajra flour, wheat flour, oil and salt and enough hot water to make a soft dough.
2. Knead well. Divide the dough into 4 equal portions.
3. Roll out each portion of the dough thinly into circles of 200 mm. (8″) diameter.
4. Lightly cook the bajra rotis on a tava (griddle) on both sides. Keep aside.
For the stuffing
1. Combine the chawli, green chillies, garlic and coriander in a blender or a food processor without using any water to make a coarse paste.
2. Heat the oil in a pan, add the asafoetida and salt and the ground chawli mixture and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes.
3. Cool and divide the mixture into 2 portions.
How to proceed
1. Spread one portion of the filling on one cooked bajra roti. Then place another bajra roti on top and press the sides so that the filling gets sealed between the two rotis.
2. Cook the stuffed roti on a tava (griddle) on both sides using a little ghee, till both sides are golden brown.
3. Repeat for the remaining two rotis and stuffing.
4. Serve hot.
