Rajasthani Missi Roti (rajasthani Spicy Paratha Made With Whole Wheatflour And Gram Flour)

Rajasthani Cuisine has a unique rustic taste and thus people who love vegetarian food, especially like Rajasthani food. Missi roti is one of the well known Rajasthani food and is actually part of their daily meal. The first time I had this was in one of my colleague’s home who belongs to Jaipur. She referred to it as ‘ Rajasthani Roti’ , I learnt it from her and made it couple of times in my house but it is only few weeks back that I came to know it is actually called ‘ Missi Roti’ from the internet. As it is a little spicy and is loaded with ghee, I recommend to serve it with any curry preparation and pickles.
