Onion lends that inimitable crunch and slight sweetness that perfectly balance the flavour of this roti. Methi deserves equal or more credit in this recipe as it is highly benficial for diabetics to control blood sugar levels. The combination of two flours is also very nutritious. Since this Methi ki Missi Roti is cooked without oil, it averts a lot of calories, making a wholesome meal when served with Healthy Subzis and Low Fat Curds .

This recipe has a very good selection of ingredients for diabetics. My fathers dietitian has asked to include chana dal flour, onions and methi in his diet to keep high blood glucose level under control. The onions give a very good mouthfeel. Best served off the tava with a healthy subzi.
