This roti is basically made from gram flour.You can also make it with whole wheat flour and even multigrain flour.I have used fresh spinach and fenugreek leaves.This roti goes well with plain yogurt and pickle with some healthy salads.You can also serve it with fresh coriander chutney.Pack in in your kids lunch box or serve it for breakfast or dinner.

-Make a paste with onions and ginger.

- Let the dough rest for 15-20 minutes.
-Take some whole wheat in a small bowl.
-Divide the dough into 3-4 small portions and make rounds and flatten each dough ball.
-Roll each flattened dough by dusting some whole wheat flour to make small round rotis.
-Heat a flat pan and put the rotis .Cook each roti by turning it on both sides.
