Carrot is a vegetable that is often eaten raw. And then its also eaten mildly cooked smashed with food and fed to the kids since its too healthy not to. Finally, its also used to salads, halwa and used in Briyani/Pulav. What I am putting today is an uncommon use for carrots – Carrot Roti ! I prepare this with sujee – you can have the roti with your favorite chutney powder/tomato sauce.

What you need to have:

1. Bombay sujee – 1 and 1/2 cup

2. Grated carrots – 1 cup

3. Chopped Onion – 1 cup

4. Green chillies chopped – 2 Teaspoons

5. Ginger chopped – 1 Teaspoon

6. Fresh grated coconut – 2 Tablespoons

7. Chopped coriander leaves – 2 Tablespoons

8. Cumin seeds – 1 Teaspoon

    Hi Suparna,

    You can even replace it cucumber, chayote squash etc instead of carrots.

    Will it not be hot on the griddle to flatten the roti dough with one’s hand? Can we use a serving utensil/spoon to flatten the dough? Infact I’ve made the same by spreading it on a banana leaf(the traditional method) and then transferring onto the griddle. This is a very tasty recipe indeed!

      Hi Anjali,

      Just simmer the flame, place required quantity of dough on the griddle , dip ur hands in water and flatten the roti. Ur method of preparation also is best suited for us. But to those of whom the banana leaves are not available, then this would be best suited. What do u say???????? Thanx 4 ur complements. Rest fine by god’s grace. Bye 4 now.

      Ur loving uncle & aunty
