Most people are apprehensive to use garlic as a predominant flavour in their cooking. This aromatic herb when served in the form of healthy lehsun rotiactually aids in digestion and also stimulates the production of breast milk, so turn to these rotis in the last month of pregnancy or while lactating.

The green garlic gives the lehsun roti for weight loss a really tantalizing aroma and flavour, while the use of multiple flours gives you loads of iron and fibre, which help maintain your haemoglobin levels and aid in weight loss too. Further we have cooked them with minimum oil. We recommend these protein richwholesome rotis for cancer 
patients and women with PCOS, who often target a multi nutrient and antioxidant rich food. 

The magnesium from the flours and the compound allicin in garlic helps in maintaining heart beat and thus makes garlic roti on tava a wise choice for people with heart disease. A mix of flours along with the use of oats which are high in fibre suits a diabetic menu too! Thus this healthy lehsun roti should be preferred over maida based roti to manage blood sugar levels. 

Tips for garlic roti. 1. Try to pick out sturdy crisp stalks of green garlic which do not appear wilted, and you should also check for mold and mildew on the garlic. 2. Unfortunately fresh green garlic is available for only a few months in the year. So if you are making these rotis in the summer, use 4 to 6 large cloves of grated garlic instead of the green garlic and add some fresh coriander leaves to add some colour to the rotis.

 Is Garlic Roti, Lehsun Roti healthy?

Yes, this garlic roti is healthy as its made of 3 healthy flours, jowar, bajra and whole wheat flour. Whats better is that this roti also uses oats. Lets see whats good.

1. Jowar Flour : Jowar flour is a complex carb and will be absorbed slowly in the bloodstream and not cause a spike in insulin. Jowar and all Millets are rich in Potassium. Potassium is critical for those with High Blood Pressure as it lessens the impact of sodium. Hence a good safe food for diabetics but to be had in restricted quantity and safe  for those who want to live and eat healthy. Being high in Fibre, Jowar reduces bad cholesterol (LDL) and increases the effects of good cholesterol (HDL). See 17 benefits of jowar and why you should have it.

2. Whole Wheat flour : 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour is used. Whole wheat flour is excellent for diabetics as they will not shoot up your blood sugar levels as they are a low GI food. See detailed benefits of whole wheat flour and why it's good for you.

3. Bajra flour : We have used 1/4 cup oif bajra flour to make 5 rotis. Bajra flour is high in protein and is a complete protein for vegetarians when combined with dal. So as a Vegetarian, include bajra in your diet.  Bajra is a great option for those on a gluten free diet. See here for the detailed benefits of bajra flour

4. Oats : Oats are a great source of protein for Vegetarians. It is rich in soluble fibre (to make it good for diabetics), which helps lower blood LDL cholesterol, the so-called "Bad" cholesterol. Whole Oats have an antioxidant called Avenanthramide (a polyphenol from oats) which helps lower blood pressure levels. Soluble fibre absorbs water and swells and to become gel like substance which helps in the absorption of nutrients like B Vitamins and minerals like Magnesium and Zinc which are key to a good heart. See here why oats are good for you?

5. Green Garlic (hara lahsun) : The most peculiar benefit of green garlic is due to its active ingredient, allicin. This works as a powerful antioxidant to boost your immune system and prevent common infections like cough and cold as well as chronic diseases like cancer. It protects the heart by maintaining the levels of cholesterol in the body. It also soothes the digestive tract by treating intestinal microbes. Just chop green garlic and use it creatively to make rotis, pancakes, chutney etc.

What is a healthy accompaniment to this roti?

We suggest you pair it with homemade curds using cows milk or low fat curds or a cucumber and pudina raita.
