TOMATO ROTI

Tomato Roti

This is a flat bread using wheat or whole wheat flour, flavored with ground coriander, chili powder, cilantro and of course fresh crushed tomato and tomato sauce. It is a healthier alternative for wholesome and filling meal if taken along other side dishes containing veggies, lentils or meat.

There is another method to prepare this roti by cooking the tomato and all the spice separately then added to dough.  Either way you choose, it is still turned out fabulous.

I didn't add any liquid to the dough since crushed tomato contains some juice but  if it is still crumbly add the water by a tablespoon at a time.

The dough is made up with a least oil and let  rest for 20 minutes. It is then rolled into flat round disc, fried on a griddle until brown spots appear on both side. From this basic dough, you can create a lot more variation of this healthy roti.

1/2  tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder

Tomato Roti


METHOD

Combine tomato sauce, crushed tomato, spices, cilantro, curry leaves, hing and salt in a mixing bowl.

Add in flour and oil, add water gradually if required  to form into soft dough. Keep aside for 20 minutes.

Divide dough into 4 balls.  Roll each ball into thin circle.

Fry each roti on heated flat pan, flip if brown spot appears on top, drizzle some oil if desired.

Complete with the rest of the dough.

Serve hot with chutney or spicy gravy.

Nice tomato flavoured rotis..

Incorporating spices into roti is something that easily comes to mind and can be achieved. However, getting the tomato sauce in there I am sure required some experimenting. Definitely worth it though, I know I would enjoy all that tomato flavor in there-yum! Great post!
