Today I am sharing a delicious Roti recipe that is gluten free. Masala Roti (Gluten free) can be served for breakfast , lunch or dinner. It is very filling and nutritious. In India we can find many types of breads and it varies from region to region. Each region has its own unique recipe.My family loves Roti and other Indian flat breads. They are very easy to make .

Some Info about Indian Breads:

  • Most flat breads from northern India are unleavened and made primarily from milled flour, usually atta or maida, and water.
  • Some flatbreads, especially paratha, may be stuffed with vegetables and layered with either ghee or butter.
  • Some breads are made on the skillet , some are deep fried and some are baked in an oven.
  • Indian Cuisine is known for its leavened and unleavened flatbread.

Ingredients for Masala Roti (Gluten Free):

  • Chickpea Flour /Besan : Chickpea flour is gluten free . It is rich in Vitamins and Minerals. It is loaded with fiber.
  • Rice Flour: It is gluten free and good for people with gluten allergies.
  • Jeera / Cumin: Aromatic spice that aids digestion and is rich in Anti oxidants.
  • Black Sesame Seeds:Natural source of plant protein that is gluten free and rich in fiber.
  • Garam Masala: Aromatic spice blend that enhances the taste of the Roti. I have used home made Garam Masala.
  • Salt: I have used Himalayan pink salt. You can use any regular salt that you use.
  • Chilli Flakes: Gives a nice colour and some mild spice kick to the roti. You can use Kashmiri red chilli powder instead.
  • Yogurt: Yogurt is  high in protein, calcium, vitamins, and live culture, or probiotics, which can enhance the gut microbiota.Roti tastes awesome.
  • Plain Water: Add little water only if need after you add yogurt.
  • Coriander leaves finely chopped: Gives a nice aroma and texture to the dish.
  • Oil: I have used sunflower oil for greasing the masala roti. You can add ghee.
