Baked Missi Roti

What is Missi Roti?

It’s an Indian flat bread. There are a few types of flour, dry and ground spices that are used to make this. It is considered a warm and comforting bread, which is generally preferred in winters. Traditionally, it is made in Chulha or tandoor, however, I am sharing a baked version of it. The texture of this bread is crispy, crunchy and with a dollop of ghee /butter, it tastes heavenly.

What Ingredients Do You Use in Making Missi Roti?

I use chickpea flour, whole wheat flour, and corn flour(Makke ka Aata) for making this flatbread. I did so many experiments with the proportions, and this was the best I could come up with. Also, I used spice powders like turmeric, red chilli, and dry mango powder besides salt. Additionally, I use carrom seeds and fresh cilantro for garnish.

What Can You Serve with Missi Roti?

You can serve any curry or dal with this missi roti; you can additionally serve it with raita and salad as well. It goes well with any thing which has a curry consistency. The best idea is to dip this crispy and crunchy bread into a creamy bowl of lentils or curry to get that wholesome and heavenly experience.

Can You Store Missi Roti?

No. It tastes best when it’s just out of the oven. Since it contains gram flour and corn flour, it has a tendency to get hard after keeping for a long time. I will suggest that you that you set the table and put the missi roti inside the oven. It hardly takes 5-6 minutes in a pre-heated oven. It’s easy to serve immediately. If for any reason you have to store it, wrap it in a soft cotton towel and then keep it.
