This recipe is very simple. In one of my trips to Mumbai, I had an opportunity to taste this roti. I came home and tried this preparation. I have added some white til, ajwain and pounded garlic .
Goes well with any simple gravy, plain curds and a pickle. Today, I have served Cauliflower Dalma with this roti. Do try this recipe and please post your valuable feedback.
Wheat flour – 2 cups
Cleaned, washed and finely chopped methi leaves – 1 cup
White sesame seeds ( til ) – 1 and 1/2 tablespoons
Ajwain ( omum ) – 1 tablespoon
Pounded garlic flakes – 4 flakes
Fresh curds – 3 tablespoons
Oil – 2 tablespoons
Finely chopped green chillies – 2
Turmeric powder – 1/2 teaspoon
Kashmiri chilli powder – 1 and 1/4 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Water – required amount to make a soft dough
Oil – required amount to drizzle around the roties
Take a big , broad plate ( a parat plate is the best to mix the roti dough ).
Put in the wheat flour, chopped methi leaves, pounded garlic, chopped green chillies, turmeric powder, chilli powder, salt to taste , oil, white sesame seeds, ajwain and mix well with your hands. Make a well in the centre. Add in the curds. Mix. Now sprinkle water little by little and make a soft dough. Cover and rest the dough for 30 minutes. Make medium sized roties.
Heat a tava. Cook the roti on simflame till golden. Drizzle oil all around the roti. Remove the cooked roti from the tava and transfer the roti to a dish. Cover the roti. Make all the roties in the similar manner. Serve hot with Cauliflower Dalma.

2) Adding curds gives the roti a soft texture.
