Hearty Fibre Protein Rotis
Between work, homeschool and kids, I need all the energy possible! This recipe makes a very hearty roti that I am going to make and store in the fridge for the week. Between this and my Avocado Paratha recipe, my carbs have never been so healthy!
- 0.5 cup ground flax seeds
- 0.5 cup ground oats
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 0.5-0.75 cups hot water
- butter/ghee to top
I grind my own flax seeds and oats but they can be purchased already grounded
Mix all dry ingredients together in your mixer or in a bowl
Add your olive oil and mix into your flour mixture
Gradually add hot water and knead into a soft dough – do not over knead. The dough should come together similar to regular roti dough
Once the dough ball is smooth (see picture), cover and let rest for 15 minutes
Preheat a non-stick pan on medium low temperature
Divide the dough into 8 smaller balls
Using a rolling pin, start to roll out one dough ball. Make sure the remaining 7 dough balls stay covered. Air will dry out your dough and cause it to form a skin and result in tougher rotis.
Roll out into a 10" circle and place top side down onto your pan. Cook for 1 minute before flipping. Cook each side until you see small brown spots all over
Top with butter or ghee for flavour and softness
Can be stored in the fridge in a Ziploc for 3-4 days.
