Sweet Corn Roti

If you have noticed in my blog, I make rotis with pureed vegetables to make V eat that extra vegetable as he never used to eat any curry with rotis. He started to eat it with dal recently. But I continue to make rotis with vegetables as it doesn’t harm us to eat that extra vegetable. And ofcourse, V loves the green, pink etc rotis.

I wouldn't have even thought about making a sweetcorn roti if it wasn't for this month's Magic Mingle – Corn & Wheat. Kalyani hosts Magic Mingle every month and comes up with these amazing combinations of ingredients. To make something with both the ingredients pushes you out of your comfort level.

I liked the subtle sweetness the sweetcorn gave the roti. It so subtle, you could almost eat it like a normal roti with curries and still get the goodness of sweetcorn in your body. The photos might not be very appealing as it looks like regular roti but looks can be deceiving…

Makes: 9 - 10 rotis

1 cup Sweetcorn - cooked, pureed and strained - I used frozen
2 cups Chapati Atta
1 tsp Oil
Salt to taste
Water as needed

  1. Mix all the ingredients except oil together to form a pliable dough.
  2. Spread the Oil on the dough, cover and let it rest for atleast 20 minutes.
  3. Give it one final knead and make 9 - 10 equal sized balls
  4. Make rotis as you would normally do and serve with a curry on the side.
Note: Make sure you strain the sweet corn puree as will be small bits left. Children might choke on this.

This goes to Kalyani's Magic Mingle #3


  1. Find it difficult to feed veggies to my daughter as well. I too resort to this method of sneaking in veggies. This one sounds yummy

  2. sounds good.i made somehting similar for MM#3

  3. Hey Shwetha, this is indeed just cant make out ...absolutely new. Am sure the sweet taste of corn must be interesting in the rotis.

  4. fab rotis. WIll make this at my place.

  5. very good!!..really these are a total foo proof for kiddos!!

  6. Nice way of sneaking sweet corn in kid's diet. Rotis look soft and nice...

  7. Complete nutritive rotis..Liked the idea!!

  8. Nice recipe, but actually, I liked the clicks a lot more :)).Its very difficult to get a good shot of chapatis or dosas and the like, but you have done a great job!

  9. nice idea to merge the two in roti.. am sure the texture must be good.
