For The Bajra Rotis
1/2 cup bajra (black millet) flour
2 tbsp whole wheat flour (gehun ka atta)
1 tsp oil
salt to taste

For The Stuffing
1 cup long beans (chawli) , finely chopped
3 to 4 green chillies , chopped
1 tbsp chopped garlic (lehsun)
2 tbsp chopped coriander (dhania)
a pinch of asafoetida (hing)
2 tsp oil
salt to taste

Other Ingredients
ghee or oil for cooking

For the bajra rotis

  1. Mix the bajra flour, wheat flour, oil and salt and enough hot water to make a soft dough. Keep aside.

For the stuffing

  1. Combine the chawli, green chillies, garlic and coriander in a blender or a food processor without using any water to make a coarse paste.
  2. Heat the oil in a pan, add the asafoetida and salt and the ground chawli mixture and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Cool and divide the mixture into 2 equal portions.

How to proceed

  1. Divide the dough into 4 equal portions.
  2. Roll out each portion of the dough thinly into circles of 200 mm. (8") diameter.
  3. Place a roti on a flat, dry surface and spread a portion of the prepared stuffing in the centre and spread it evenly.
  4. Then place another bajra roti on top and press the sides so that the filling gets sealed between the two rotis.
  5. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and cook the roti, using a little oil till it turns golden brown in colour from both the sides.
  6. Repeat with the remaining dough and stuffing to make 1 more roti.
  7. Serve immediately.
