2 HIGHLY NUTRITIOUS DOUGHS FOR ROTI (flat round bread)

After putting dry flour into kneading pot, add some sifted gram flour to the dry flour. You can add 10-40% gram flour as compared to the amount of flour. It depends on your taste how much you want to add. Even a little amount of gram flour will add extra nutrition to your roti without extra effort. First mix the gram flour into the dry flour to make sure it has spread evenly. Then start pouring water and knead as per your own steps. Make roti with this and it will be nutritious and delicious! 

Tip: Adding few drops of fruit vinegar or synthetic vinegar makes the dough soft and keep the dough safe from bacteria.



Add semolina (sooji) to your roti dough

First you need to sift and dry roast semolina until it changes colour slightly. Don’t over roast it or you might loose the nutrition present in it. Leave it until it is at the room temperature.

    1. Akasha Aquil, adding these to the flour keeps the quantity of flour less and keeps tummy fuller for long time. instead of store bought brown bread, use wholemeal flour with above steps for good results.
