Carrot Roti

Yes... My blogging has slowed down. I am trying to keep up and not let the blog "die".

The problem is, I need to wear my glasses when I am at the computer. That's not the actual problem. I've gotten used to it at work. But my son thinks they are sunglasses and wants to wear them. I tell him to wear his own sunglasses and that these are not sunglasses. He doesn't listen and he wants only my "sunglasses".

I decided its best not to wear them for sometime when he's around. And by the time he sleeps, I am too tired to think of writing anything.

But now, I thought instead of browsing around during my lunch hour, I'll try and do a write up sometimes. I just need to edit photos when I am at home before posting. Makes more sense, doesn't it? Not that I'll be posting everyday. But at least I can do some write ups now and then.

This recipe is again very subject to individual taste. Everything depends on how spicy you want it. I myself don’t stick to one recipe.

2 Carrots – peeled, roughly chopped and cooked well
1/4 tsp Chilli Powder
1/4 tsp Coriander Powder
1/4 tsp Cumin Powder
1/4 tsp Ginger Paste
1/4 tsp Garlic Paste
2 cups Atta (Chapati Flour)
Salt to Taste

  1. Blend together the cooked carrots, Chilli Powder, Coriander Powder, Cumin Powder and Salt to a smooth paste adding water as needed. Make sure the paste is not watery.
  2. Take atta in a bowl and incorporate the carrot paste into it.
  3. Add water if necessary and make the dough.
  4. Let it rest for atleast 20 mins and make Rotis(Phulkas).
  5. Serve with any curry.

Note: I have learnt how to make Chapatis / rotis on my own. My guide has been Shilpa of Aayis Recipes. I've also seen some videos on You Tube. It just takes practice.
