I am sharing the recipe for the very simple to make Rajgira roti / flatbread. It is again recipe which can be had while you are fasting.
Rajgira is also known as Amarnath grain flour. In Dubai, the flour is easily available in Al Adil supermarkets.
Serves : 4
3 large potatoes boiled and mashed
2 cups rajgira aata / Amarnath grain flour
2 tsp roasted peanut powde
2 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp carrom seeds
1 tsp finely chopped green chillies (optional)
1 tsp cumin powder
Water as required
1 tsp oil
Boil potatoes in salted water. Ensure to use rock salt since it is a fasting recipe.
Let the potatoes cool for a while and then just mash them with a fork.
Add rajgira flour, peanut powder, coriander powder, green chillies, carrom seeds, cumin powder and mix well.
Use some water as need be and bind the dough. It should be a stiff dough.
Add oil once the dough is come together and knead for a bit.
Let the dough rest for 10-15 mins. The texture of the dough is too crumbly hence you would not get perfectly round rotis.
Make small balls of the dough and flatten it out on a well floured surface.
On a hot tawa (Indian griddle) cook the roti on each side on medium heat for a few minutes.
You will be required to brush the roti with a little oil so that it does not stick to the tawa.
Once the roti has acquired a nice brown even color, take off heat.
Serve with Vrat Kadhi or Potato Sabzi.
