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


150 gms Wheat flour
250 gms Besan
1 tsp Red chilly powder
1 tsp Dhaniya Powder
3 tsp Ghee
1/2 tsp Jeera
1/2 tsp Kaala Jeera
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Ajwain


  1. 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.

Serve hot. Shahi ghatte is a good combination with missi roti.

Rajasthani panchmel dal – (side dish for chapatis /rice)


1/4 cup Chanadal/bengal gram
1/4 cup Mung/Green gram
1/4 cup Udid dal/Split black gram
1/4 cup Tuvar dal/Pigeon pea split
gram 1/4 Masoor dal/Red split- cup
To taste Salt
2 Green chillies
Ginger- A small piece
2 Whole red chillies
1 tsp Coriander powder
1 tsp Cumin powder
1/2 tsp Red chilly powder
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
2 Tomatoes-chopped
3 Oil- tb
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
4 – 5 Cloves
1 pinch Asafoetida
1/2 tsp garam masala powder


  1. Soak the lentils for around two hours. Add salt and turmeric powder and pressure cook them. Make a paste of green chillies and ginger. Add little oil in a pan.Add asafoetida, cumin seeds, cloves and dry red chillies. When cumin starts to change colour, add the ginger-green chilly paste and saute for sometime. Stir in some cumin powder, coriander powder and red chilly powder. Add the tomatoes and cook till oil separates. Add the cooked lentils and water if required. Cook for 10 mins stirring well. Add garam masala powder and serve hot with rice.
