NACHNI ROTI......

KNEADED NACHNI FLOUR


PUFFED UP ROTI



NACHNI or Ragi is a very nutritious .This is usually given in a form of porridge to very young kids.
This is a simple roti which is seen consumed by people in Maharashtra.
Villagers usually have it for their dinner, which consists of this roti and a spicy vegetable. Its filling, has lots of fiber and very good for health, for the whole family and most important for a common man it’s very reasonable too. You can say that it’s a poor mans meal.

INGREDIENTS

3 cups nachni flour
1 cup wheat flour
Salt a little
Water for kneading (use of warm water is preferred)

METHOD:

Knead together the above ingredients and keep covered for about ½ hour.
Roll out the roti and let it puff on the gas stove as shown in the picture.
Eat it with spicy vegetable.

Hi Mahek, I make ragi rottis but this is a wonderful new idea to mix with atta.Very nice,thanks for that.They look fabulous.I will make these:)

I too make rottis with ragi flour alone. Seems adding atta makes them to puff. What a great idea.

Hi,

Came across your blog while googling for the cucumber dosa.

The "Goanche" touched off a lot of nostalgia. We lived in Panaji for 10 years till 3 years back. My daughter used to tell everyone, "Appa is from Cochin, Amma is from Calicut and I am from Goa'!

I have to tell you that living in Goa spoils every other place for you. Thanks for the pictures. Felt good being to recognise most of the places. Will keep coming back to your blog.
