Masala Rotis. Nabeel has been hogging these rotis since he was 15months old. A fellow mom at his mother-toddler class suggested I try them and since then the Masala Rotis have been his comfort food. I have always carried these rotis for our travels for Nabeel and adults alike. Only recently they vanished when Nabeel discovered his foodie side and forgot all about the humble rotis. I made them today and he was more than thrilled to devour them. What was more special about the rotis today? They were shaped using a smiley cookie cutter, a shape that Nabeel loves.

Step 1 – Mix onion, green chilli, coriander, turmeric powder and salt in a bowl.
Step 2 – Take the wheat flour and start to knead the dough with 2 tablespoons of oil, add the vegetable mixture and knead using water.
Step 3 – Once the dough is ready taste it for salt and keep aside, covered, for 10 minutes.
Step 4 – Divide the dough into 8 balls. Roll each ball into a medium sized roti. If you want to make smiley rotis then cut them using the cookie cutter. Cook the rotis on a hot grilled, but on a slow flame on both sides till light spots appear. Smear oil on both sides before taking off the griddle. Serve immediately or transfer to a container.
You can add finely grated carrots, cauliflower or cabbage to the dough, too. Powdered rolled oats or soya granules can also be added.
