Weekly Menu Planner for Vegetarians and Non Vegetarians - Week 5

I am back with the Weekly Menu Planner Week 4.

If you are interested to know how this all started, you can read how I was thinking about being organsied. I had shared My Menu Planner and I even had a Sample Menu Planner.
After this I started planning for my daughter, later included for my boys as well a Weekly Menu for Kids.

Then I went on to have Party Menus. Now I thought I would seriously start the regular weekly menu plan, just changed a bit by including ideas from my BM friends.

Hope this helps and do share your suggestions and ideas to improve this.

Multigrain Flour Masala Roti ~ Diabetic Diet

For today, I have a healthy mixed flour roti that's spicy and with masala. It is also very good for diabetic diet. Athamma makes it for herself, while we make regular Bajra roti or Jowar Roti. We either serve it with chutney or kurma. So those times, this is the roti that Athamma makes for herself. This is so delicious that you would simply eat it as such without any side dish to dip.

I remember Amma making something similar with just bajra flour, this roti has a mix of all whole grain flour and is so filling. I liked it so much that I wanted to record it for later usage.

Multigrain Flour Masala Roti

Ingredients Needed:

Ragi flour - 1/2 cup
Jowar flour - 1/4 cup
Bajra flour - 1/4 cup
Wheat flour - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Oil for cooking

For the Masala

Green chilies - 3 long
Onions - 1 medium
Coriander leaves handful
Tender curry leaves

How to make the roti

Dry roast all the flours separately and allow it to cool down.

Mix all the flours in a wide bowl, add in all the spices and onions. Slowly add warm water and knead to a stiff dough.  Divide the dough into equal balls.

This roti needs to be patted down, so on a wet cloth or plastic sheet, pat down each ball into a circle.

Heat a tawa, grease with oil. Gently transfer the rotis and cook on both sides.

Serve it as well as the spice is enough, else this makes a great combination with chutneys.
This goes for the July Week 4, Cooking from Cookbook Challenge  Group
