Rotis / Parathas recipes
When we think of rotis and parathas, we all are aware of the fact that the first cereal to be avoided is plain flour or what we commonly term as ‘maida’ and replace it with fiber rich whole wheat flour. This section precisely makes use of wheat flour in recipes like Mooli Paratha, Nutritious Lehsuni Methi Roti, Paneer Tamatar Paratha and so on.
However replacing wheat flour with other cereals like ragi, bajra, jowar, soya etc is equally important to get some share of other nutrients like iron, calcium and protein too. Bajra and Cauliflower Roti, Minty Soya Roti, Oats Mooli Roti, Radish Nachni Roti are a few recipes fortified with the above cereals.
And on days when you want a complete low carbohydrate, protein rich boost, try out recipe of Almond Bhakri.
While including these cereals in your weight loss diet, also keep in mind
1. To cook them very little fat and if possible with olive oil.
2. Avoid addition of fat laden ghee and butter while kneading the dough for the roti / paratha.
3. Always add one vegetable to the roti dough to make up for your vitamins and minerals.
4. Serve and enjoy them immediately as they are cooked in less fat, they might turn chewy with time.
These variety of flavoured rotis and parathas are sure to please your palate.
