Gluten is a general name for the proteins found in wheat (wheatberries, durum, emmer, semolina, spelt, farina, farro, graham, khorasan wheat and einkorn), rye, barley and triticale – a cross between wheat and rye.

Recipe for Masala Rotti:
- 1 Cup Besan
- 2 Cups Jowar Flour
- 3 Green Chillies finely chopped
- 2 Onions finely Chopped
- 1.5 Tsp Jeera / Cumin Seeds
- 2 Cups Finely Chopped Palak (You can use any greens of your choice)
- 1 Tbsp Oil
- Salt to taste
- A generous Pinch oh Hing
- 1 Tsp Red Chilli Powder
- Oil for making Rotis
- Water to Knead the dough
Take a wide bottom bowl and mix all the Ingredients. Heat a tbsp of oil and pour the sizzling hot oil to the flour mix. Mix well. Add water in small quantities to make a dough. It should be the same consistency as the dough for making Akki Rotti.
Take a Tava / Griddle. Add a tsp of oil and grease the whole tava. Take a big lemon size dough and pat evenly on the tava. Switch on the flame. Put some oil on let it cook on medium flame. Ensure not to burn. Once it is done remove from the tava and serve. Repeat the process for the balance dough.
Serve with any chutney of your choice. I served it with Palm Jaggery and Curry leaves Chuntey Powder. It was a mind blowing combination.You need to try it to believe it.
- You may use banana leaf or butter paper to flatten the dough and then transfer it on to the griddle.
2. You may use methi or any greens instead of Palak
3. Don’t skip the addition of sizzling hot oil to the dough mix. It is an important step.
4. Feel free to add carrots/ Zuchinni /Cucumber
