Bajra is the staple diet in many parts of North-Western India where the locals enjoy it with garlic chutney, jaggery and home-made butter. In this recipe, I have stuffed these rotis with a mixture of paneer, fenugreek and tomatoes, thus enriching it with calcium, folic acid and iron. If you find it difficult to actually "stuff " these rotis because this dough is a little tough to roll, feel free to knead all the filling ingredients into the dough and then roll out the rotis. It is a much easier way of making them. I also find it easier to roll out this dough between 2 sheets of plastic.

A good variation to plain bajra rotis which are stuffed with calcium rich paneer and iron rich methi... the stuffing has tomatoes too, hence need to be served immediately.
