Missi roti and panchmel dal --Rajasthani recipes

One good thing about food blogging is it makes me hunt for more recipes and try out those food which I never thought of making. Now for the RCI Rajasthan event, after googling and debating on what to make out of so many dishes, I settled on making Rajasthani dal and missi roti. So here is how I made them.

Missi roti-
Wheat flour - 150gms
Besan -250gms
Red chilly powder-1tsp
Dhaniya Powder -1tsp
Ghee -3tsp
Jeera -1/2tsp
Kaala Jeera -1/2tsp
Salt -1tsp
Ajwain -1/2tsp
Mix all the ingredients well and knead them into a stiff dough. Roll into thick rotis and roast them on a tava. Brush little melted ghee on the roti.
