How to make Roti with Flax Seeds
Take wheat flour in any big bowl. Now add cumin seeds, salt, flax seeds powder and 1 tsp ghee into it. Mix well. Add water little by little and knead soft dough. Cover the dough and keep it aside for 20 to 30 minutes to set.
After 20 to 30 minutes, dough will be ready. Grease hands with some oil and knead the dough again until smooth. Preheat a tawa. Make small lumps from the dough and roll giving it a round shape. Dust the dough ball with dry flour and roll equally from all sides. Dust this rolled chapatti with dry flour again and remove the excess flour.
Place the dusted chapatti over a rolling board and roll it out equally from all sides with equal thickness. Place the rolled chapatti over tawa. When the chapatti is roasted from beneath, it gets darker on the surface. Flip the chapatti and roast from another side as well. Meanwhile roll second chapatti.
When roti gets brown spots on other side, take it off tawa and roast directly over the flame and roast from the side with brown spots evenly with help of tongs until it gets nice brown spots. Make sure that spots appear brown in color. Flip the roti and roast from other side as well. Hold the chapatti with tongs and roast from all sides until it gets light brown spots.
Roti is now roasted, apply some ghee over it and place over a bowl kept above a plate. Likewise prepare all rotis. Serve flax seed roti with dal, sabzi, raita, curd, pickle, chutney and relish eating.
