Multigrain Chapati from Home Made Whole grains Flour

 Multigrain food usually contains more than one grain.They may include whole grain ingredients like oats,cracked wheat,ragi(millet),soya flour or some other grains.
To make this very healthy chapati, i purchase the whole grains and make fresh flour from them at home.You can take small quantities of each of the whole grain and make a flour and store it in an air tight container for atleast a week.This flour is fresh as it is home-made and is much better than the multigrain flours available at the super markets.It also provides the essential benefits of a multigrain food as the grains in the food are all whole grains.I have also added sesame seeds and grated carrots to make it more nutritious.
Whenever you buy multigrain foods from the supermarkets,make sure the product contains the 'whole' grains.Check the food labels and buy multigrain products with whole grains only.

 Millet flour(Ragi)-1/4 cups
Oats flour-1/4 cups
Soya flour-1/4 cups
Whole wheat flour-1/2 cups
Grated carrot-1
Finely chopped onions-1/2
Finely chopped garlic-2 teaspoons
Finely chopped green chillies-1
Red chilli powder-1/4 teaspoon
Sesame seeds-4 teaspoons
water-to make dough
Salt -1 teaspoon
Oil/Ghee-2 teaspoons
-Take a pan and dry roast the oats for 4-5 minutes and crush it in blender to make a fine powder.
-Similarly,dry roast the millet and make a powder from it too.
-I have used soya nuggets to make the soya flour.You can also use soya flour available in the market.
-Take a big vessel and add all the ingredients and only 1 teaspoon oil and mix them well with your hands.
-Take another pan and warm 6 table spoons of water.
-Add the warm water to the flour mix slowly and gently knead to make a nice soft dough.
-Let the dough rest for 15 minutes.
-Divide the dough into 4-5 portions by making small balls and press the ball and make it flat.
-Dust whole wheat flour and roll to make  round chapatis.
-Heat a flat pan and cook the chapatis.
- Turn them to cook on both sides.
-You can add oil or ghee.
-Serve hot with plain yogurt or green dhania chutney.

 My Notes
You can also make nice crispy crackers from this dough.Add little water to the flour mix and knead a tight and dry dough for making crackers.Roll the dough by dusting flour using a roll pin and cut it into thin strips using a knife.You can cook it on a flat pan or even bake it.
