Lets see what goes into this recipe and can it form part of a healthy life style.

1. Potatoes : This recipe uses one cup of boiled potatoes.  Being high in simple carbohydrates they will lead to weight gain and not good for people with diabetes, heart problems and obesity. See full details on why potatoes are bad for you. You are better off stuffing your roti with any healthy vegetables like cauliflower, bhindi, mooli. 

2. Plain flour : We have used half cup for 6 rotis. Plain flour is a refined food which you don't want as part of your diet. Always try and use whole wheat flour, jowar flour or bajra flour as they are healthy and good for diabetics and heart patients. 

3. Ghee and oil for cooking : The fat levels are acceptable per roti. Ghee is also loaded with butyrate which has proven to improve gut health. 

 

So, potato roti gets a NO for healthy food. Problem is with the potatoes and plain flour. 

Opt for more healhy options like a bhakri or roti
