The word "paushtic" in hindi means healthy or life giving. This roti is a nutritious combination of a cereal and a pulse along with a green leafy vegetable, enhanced further by the addition of milk or curds. All of these contribute to make this dish rich in folic acid, iron, protein and calcium. Have these rotis instead of the plain whole wheat chapatis we usually eat.
- Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl and knead into a soft dough using enough warm water.
- Divide the dough into 14 equal portions and roll out each portion into a circle of 125 mm. (5") diameter, using a little whole wheat flour for rolling.
- Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and cook each roti, using a little oil, till it turns golden brown in colour from both sides.
- Serve immediately with fresh curds.
