Tepla - Methi Roti
I have been making lot of south Indian food off late,so I thought I will make some different authentic food,teplas.These teplas are great in flavor... and when the dough hits the tava it smells sooo good!!! I wanted to have right away:))...Teplas can also be called "Train Food",because they stay fresh for days and this what you want while train traveling.So,next time while traveling take these rotis along and believe me,you will be a star*...
1) Whole wheat flour - 1 1/2 cups
2) Chic pea flour(besan) - 1tblsp
3) Red chilly powder - 1tsp
4) Coriander cumin powder - 1 1/2tsp
5) Turmeric - 1tsp
6) Salt to taste
7) Butter milk - 1/2 cup
8) Kasoori methi(dried fenugreek leaves)(can use fresh leaves too) - 1 1/2 tblsp
9) Oil for making rotis
Mix all the above ingredients(except oil)into a soft roti dough(make sure that you rub the kassori methi leaves against your palm,this will allow it to release its flavor).If needed use little water to make the dough.Set aside for 30 minutes.
Make equal size balls out of the dough.Take each ball and roll it into a roti.
Heat a pan and cook these rotis one by one until they turn golden brown on each side.Pour little oil around the edges.It tends to release lovely aroma.
Hot methi rotis are ready!!! Serve it with curd and pickle.I served it with black beans subji.
Note: If using fresh methi leaves use a tablespoon of it because they are fresh.
