Multigrain Roti

Print

Roti is a flatbread that is usually made from whole wheat.  Since I am constantly trying to increase the protein content of my foods, I decided to substitute the whole wheat for a multigrain version since some brands add soybeans and flaxseed to their flours. It makes a delicious roti and ups my protein intake to boot!

This is best paired with my Roasted Eggplant Baingan Bhartha!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

With many Indian dishes that are saucy, there is nothing like warm, fresh made roti to spoon up those delicious flavors. Sandy’s version ups the nutrition ante by substituting a multigrain flour that has a higher protein content thanks to added soy & flax (with the bonus of being a good source of iron!) for plain whole wheat. This is especially important for vegetarians or vegans who may otherwise have difficulty getting adequate protein from a vegetable-based diet. Look for flours like this one that have nuts, flax or quinoa as part of the ingredients if you're in need of extra of protein.

For those who are gluten sensitive, use brown rice flour or gluten-free multigrain flour instead in this recipe. If you are diabetic like Sandy, having one serving of roti with her recipe for Roasted Eggplant (Baingan Bhartha) keeps you well within recommended carbohydrate limits. Roti - it’s better than any utensil, any day!
