Onion lends that inimitable crunch and slight sweetness that perfectly balance the flavour of this roti. Just use the chopped onions as suggested – do not add salt and squeeze out the water as that will make it soft. Methi deserves equal or more credit in this recipe as it is very good for diabetics. The combination of flours is also very nutritious. Since this roti is cooked without oil, it averts a lot of calories, making a wholesome meal when served with a healthy subzi and low-fat curds.
