Spinach Brown Rice Roti / Diet Friendly Recipe - 38 / #100dietrecipes

Do you have leftover cooked brown rice and looking for an interesting recipe, instead of serving it with a regular curry ? Then, here is my today's healthy and tasty roti to make your meal, flavorful and nutritious.This delicious roti is prepared using leftover cooked brown rice along with ragi flour, wheat flour and spinach. Very healthy, right ? Low fat curd raita can be served as a side dish for this roti but personally, I just roll them and have as such, without any side dish. Addition of veggies like grated carrot, bottle gourd, beetroot etc makes this roti, more healthier and yummy too.

Ingredients :

1 Cup Spinach, Blanched and chopped finely
3/4 Cup Ragi flour
1 Cup Brown rice, cooked
1/2 Cup Wheat flour
Salt to taste
1 Big Onion, Finely chopped
2 Green chillies, Finely chopped
1 Cup Water
1 Tsp Olive oil + extra for preparing roti

Method :

Heat oil in a pan and add the chopped onion followed by green chillies.

Saute till the onion turns translucent and add the measured water.

Let the water boil and add salt followed by ragi flour.

Stir well in a low flame, till the flour absorbs the water.

Meanwhile, grind the cooked brown rice to fine paste.

Add it to the ragi mixture along with the blanched and chopped spinach leaves.

Remove from the flame and transfer it to a bowl.

Add wheat  flour little by little and mix well to prepare a soft dough.

Divide the dough into 10 equal sized balls and keep aside.

Take aluminum foil or banana leaf and grease it with little oil.

Take one brown rice ball, place it on the foil and gently tap it to get a roti shape. ( Dip ur fingers in water, if its sticky to make roti ).

Heat non stick tawa, brush it with little olive oil and place the roti on it.

Simmer the flame and cook both the sides.

Once done, remove from the flame and repeat the process for the remaining dough.
