Although Missi Rotis get their unique flavour from besan, the dough is almost always made with a combination of flours and the addition of soya flour does not harm the original taste in any way. Kasuri methi and the other spices add just the right amount of zing to these Rotis .

I have made the Rotis thick so that they remain soft and taste better; however you can roll them thinner if you prefer. You can have them for Breakfast or as a meal accompanied with any subzi of your choice. I suggest you try these with Bharwan Aloo or Subz Korma or Kadhai Tofu .

Very tasty roti and I prepared as roti as well as parantha.. both were very good. The flavor is quite strong so usually it hides the actual flavor of any subzi with it.
