Besan Masala Roti

Besan Masala Roti is a tasty and spicy roti prepared using besan flour and wheat flour along with the spices. Though the roti has all the flavours, it tastes great with pickle and curd. This is a perfect breakfast recipe which is so simple and easy to prepare.

This recipe goes to an interesting event Recipe swap challenge hosted by the two lovely bloggers Vidya Narayan and Jolly Makkar. The concept of the theme is to recreate the recipe from our partner's page. And for this month, I was paired with a wonderful blogger Sasmita who blogs at Her page was filled with lots of yummy recipes and after a great confusion, I chose a simple yet tasty roti as I love to try parathas and Rotis. The roti tasted too yum and being a spicy lover, I made my roti little extra spicier than the mentioned measurement. Thank you Sasmita for this delicious roti.
