These scrumptious stuffed nachni rotis are made out of nachni and whole wheat flour, and stuffed with a flavourful vegetable filling.
The succulent filling adds softness to the stuffed nachni roti making them more enjoyable. The combination of karela and cauliflower gives a well-balanced flavour and texture to the stuffing mixture, which is resplendent with the perky aroma and flavour of fenugreek leaves.
You will be surprised to see that the bitterness of ingredients like karela and fenugreek, which are excellent foods for diabetics, are beautifully offset by the cauliflower in healthy ragi paratha. We love Ragi flour as it is high in protein and great source for vegetarians. In addition its gluten-free, fibre rich food which in turn is good for diabetics and a healthy heart.
One thing you need to remember about the stuffed nachni roti is that the vegetable stuffing has to be made just before making the rotis, because it will get watery after sometime, making it difficult to roll them. Also, make sure you serve the stuffed nachni roti with cauliflower, karela, methi hot and fresh off the tava.
