Directions for: Healthy Roti

Ingredients

½ cup chick pea flour

1 ½ cup whole wheat flour

1 tsp ground coriander

1 tsp ground cumin

pinch of salt and freshly ground pepper

1 cup finely chopped spinach

½ cup finely grated broccoli

1 cup cooked mixed lentils

1 Tbsp grated ginger

½ cup water

Directions

1. Combine everything but the water in a large bowl and mix with hands until well combined. Add a little water at a time. Continue to knead with hands until the dough has a smooth consistency, like bread dough. Take a piece of dough about the size of a golf ball and roll it into a round flat disc. Dust a working surface with flour and then using a rolling pin, roll the ball into a thin patty (like a tortilla).

2. Place a non-stick pan over medium heat and gently place the rolled roti in the pan. Cook until it starts to bubble and ten flip and cook the other side. Flip it a few times and then brush with a little grape seed oil to keep it soft. The roti is done when there are brown spots on both sides, approx. 3 to 5 minutes Continue to roll and cook all the rotis.
