Missi Roti ( Spicy Chapati)

Missi roti or spicy chapati is an indian bread made with a combination of wheat flour and gram flour and seasoned with spices. Missi roti is generally ordered in restaurants along with dal makhani or jeera aloo. These are soft north indian chapatis which are light and healthy breakfast and an excellent tiffin for children.
I had missi roti for the first time in a restaurant here in India and became a fan of it. Hence, decided to try at home.
So, you also go ahead and try Missi roti at home.
