How to make Missi Roti Recipe (Spiced Gram Flour Flat Bread)
To begin making the Missi Roti Recipe, combine all the ingredients together in a large bowl. Add a little water at a time and knead to make a firm and smooth dough.
Once the dough has come together, drizzle a little oil over the dough and knead to make it smooth and soft.
Cover the dough and allow it to rest for at least 15 minutes.
Divide the dough into 10 equal portions and shape into balls. Dust in a little flour and roll out each portion of dough into a 4-inch diameter circle.
Place the missi roti dough on a preheated iron skillet and cook on both sides using a little oil or ghee. Cook until lightly browned and cooked through. The missi roti will be little crisp from the outside and yet soft inside.
Proceed the same way with the remaining dough portions.
Serve the Missi Roti along with butter and your favorite Palak Makhana Recipe.
