How to make the Besan Ki Masala Roti
In a bowl, combine all the ingredients for the masala filling. If the ghee is not enough you can add little oil to make the paste a little runny.
For the dough, combine all the ingredients, knead into a soft dough using water as required.;
Divide the dough into eight portions and make balls. Roll out each ball into a four inch disc and place one tsp portion of the masala filling on to it.;
Fold into half and then again in half to make a triangle. Roll out again to make a triangular roti.;
Repeat the same with the remaining portions. Heat a tawa and fry each roti with a little ghee till both sides are golden brown. Apply a little ghee and press it gently between your palms.
Serve hot with pickle and curds
After kneading the dough tends to be very sticky, so you may have to add on more wheat flour to get it not sticky.
Also, the ghee if it's not liquid will not make the masala spread, so you can add oil to make it smooth and to spread.
