Never in my wildest dreams I thought I would do a post on Roti and sabji. Primarily for two reasons – one, my rotis are never the perfect circle, they look more like shapes copied from Atlas, unintentionally though and two, I am not very confident about posting on North Indian dishes.
However, there is always a first time for everything. When I went to the local hypermarket last week, I came across this
I have recently got into the healthy-eating mode and I felt this had to be tried. You can see the names of the various grains that has gone into making this atta. At the same place, I also found soya granules from the same brand and I got that also since I had never made any dishes using soya granules.
I made the rotis and the sabji with great apprehension. The sabji was inspired by the picture in the box of the soya granules. It was very colourful and I tried to recreate the same using the picture to guess and add the ingredients. I was satisfied with both the roti and the sabji and so was the husband. The rotis were soft even though I didnt use ghee. This was how the rotis looked like.
The roti was delicious on its own too. With the right amount of cummin and ginger, it was very tasty and along with the soya curry, the meal was very satisfying.
