Gobi and Carrot Roti

When you want to spruce up your daily roti try this combination. It tastes yummy and it is pretty easy to put together. The trick in making any stuffed roti is to drain the water completely. You see when I first started making roti's I was not very familiar with this step. So my dough will become messy and my roti will tear. You know how frustrating it is when this happens. One of my friends told me this trick. She said no matter what you need to drain the water from your vegetables even if they look dry. Ha who knew ... Try this and see what a difference it makes

Ingredients for stuffing:

- 1 whole Cauliflower
- 2 carrots
- 1 tsp chili powder or to taste
- 1 tsp garma masala
- salt to taste
- 1 tsp corriander and cumin powder

Ingredients for the roti:
- 2 cups atta
- water to kneed.


1. Shred your vegetables. I used my food processor. It was fast and easy to do this. Mix all the spices and the salt with the vegetables. Keep it aside. This gives time for the vegetable to release some water.
2. Meanwhile mix atta and water to get a stiff dough. Don't add too much water as you will be stuffing this roti. Let it rest for at least 30 minutes.
3. Now in a muslin cloth (I used one of my father's old dhoti) dump the vegetable mixture and squeeze all the water out. You will be amazed how much water you get out this vegetables. Do not waste this water. Use it for any other subji you might make.
4. Now roll out a roti. Add a little bit of stuffing and spread it across the roti. Roll another roti and place it on top of the stuffing. Now carefully seal these roti's together and roll them a few more times. Be patient and you are sure to get a perfectly round roti.
5. Heat a tawa and add a little butter to it. Place the roti and let it cook on both sides. Either spray it or if you are brave add a huge pat of butter. It tastes so much better with butter.

Serve them hot with a dish of your choice.
