Bajra ki Masaledar Roti

Bajra Rotis are  very popular in Rajasthan. I did some mix and match to it and gave it a makeover:)

2 cup Bajra Flour (Millet)
1 cup Whole wheat flour
1 medium potato boiled and mashed
1 radish grated
Salt to taste
1 tsp Coriander powder
1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander leaves
1 finely chopped onion (optional)
1tsp chilli powder
1 tsp Garam Masala powder
1 tbsp olive oil
water to make dough

Sift together the two flours into a bowl. Add the mashed potatoes, radish, all the masalas and olive oil. Add enough water to make a soft dough. Cover the dough to rest for ten minutes. Divide the dough into small equal portions and form into balls. Make small rotis, use extra flour for rolling if required. Heat tawa/griddle and make the roti by adding oil, Fry till they give Paratha like texture.
Serve hot with Pickles, chutneys, or just butter:)

I like thSpeciallya s Bajra tends to be slightly bitter ( i like that, however the older the flour gets, the bitter taste gets pronounced)
Here we never know when it was packaged, so on the safe side, I too add wheat flour when making bhakris:)
I like the combo of veg and spices, will keep this in mind.

Nice twist to add wheat flour. I used to only make with millet flour and as Manasi has commented, it is somewhat bitter! Will try your version.
