Missi Roti

For the third week of Blogging Marathon #36 ,I chose Regional recipes and sharing some of the recipes of Rajasthan.Today's recipe is a popular flat bread in Rajasthani cuisine called Missi roti with wheat and gram flour combo.For Missi roti I added only coriander leaves,you can add freshly chopped fenugreek leaves to make it even more flavorful.This roti goes very well with simple pickle ,dhal and yogurt.It can be served with any veggie subzi or curry for a complete satisfactory meal.Off to the recipe..........................
