Missi Roti


      Today I am giving to you a traditional Punjabi recipe Missi Roti.I got this recipe from TV channel. Missi roti, pronounced “Miss-ee Row-tee” is a staple in Punjabi homes and is basically roti prepared from besan or gram flour/chickpea flour. Served with a dollop of butter and accompanied with any Indian vegetable or lentil dish, missi rotis are an excellent way of sprucing up the proteins in your diet. Missi Roti can be served for breakfast with curd or pickle. Missi Roti is good for diabetics too because of gram flour added to it as an ingredient. Gram flour is said to keep insulin levels in check! Missi roti makes you very thirsty, so be prepared to drink a lot of water after eating it! Missi roti can be stored in 2 or 3 days so this roti is very useful in journeys. I prepare missi roti frequently for dinner.I hope you try it..... Happy cooking....
