We are travelling to Hariyana for today's breakfast. When looking for recipes for this state, this aloo-bajra roti was my first pick. A simple breakfast that can be served as such or with some pickle or dal by the side. The dough itself contains enough masala to tingle your taste-buds.
The dough was a bit tricky to roll. Maybe i used a little extra potato, so it was too soft. But then i managed to roll it in between plastic paper/ziploc pouch and got a round shape.
1 1/2 cups bajra flour
2 medium potatoes, boiled and mashed
1/4 cup finely chopped onions
3 tbsp chopped coriander
1 tsp red chili powder
1/2 tsp shredded ginger
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper powder
salt to taste
bajra (black millet) flour for dusting
1 tsp ghee for cooking
- In a deep bowl combine ,mashed potatoes, chopped onions, coriander leaves, ginger, black pepper powder together. To this add bajra flour, and start kneadng a soft dough. Add 2-3 tbsp of warm water, to make dough.
- Divide the dough into 8-10 equal portions and roll out each portion into a 6" circle.
- If, in case out are not able to roll out the dough properly, then you can pat he dough ball direcly on the hot tava or ou can roll it in-between two wax papers.
- Heat a pan/tava and cook each roti using a little ghee, until both sides are golden brown. Serve hot wih an spciy curry/Dal of your choice. i served, with Caulifower dal for kids and Chole for hubby.
