Jeera Roti

Roti a.k.a chapati is a staple food for most the people from Northern parts of India. It is made out of wheat flour and sometimes maida or all purpose flour. In recent times, the trend is to use multiple grains grounded together for making roti due to beneficial factors of the various grains.

Here I have detailed the steps on making a Jeera/Cumin roti. Let's see the ingredients list needed,


1 cup wheat flour
1 cup maida/all purpose flour
1/4 butter
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup water
1 tsp cumin/jeera seeds
1/4 cup warm milk


1. Sieve together wheat flour, maida and salt.

2. Add butter to the flour and mix well.

3. Meanwhile, boil 1/2 cup water and add cumin seeds to it.

4. Pour the boiling water onto the flour, add warm milk and let it stand for 5 minutes. Do not mix at this point in time.

5. After 5 minutes, mix the flour dough very well. Knead them well for 7-8 minutes. Cover it with a wet cloth and set it aside for at least 15 minutes. Now the dough is ready to roll.

6. Make medium sized balls out of the dough. Spread half a tsp ghee/butter over the kitchen countertop or roti maker. Roll the balls into a thin circle.

7. Heat a pan and add the rotis to it. 20 seconds on each side in medium flame. Smear some butter to the rotis. Tasty and soft rotis are ready to eat. Enjoy with your favourite side dish. Here i have had it with Paneer Peas masala and Potato Broccoli stir fry.
