I have given a detailed  introduction of Barley in my earlier Barley masala dosa recipe.  I like to include this millet in the daily menu and hence i tried out a couple of recipes  like the dosa, chapati and also idli which i will be putting up in the couple of weeks.  Here goes the recipe of Barley chapati….

1. Wheat flour – 3/4 cup

2. Barley flour — 3/4 cup

3. Carom seeds(Ajwain) – 1 teaspoon

4. Salt – as needed

5. Warm water – as needed

What you do with what you have:

1. Sieve both wheat atta, Barley atta along with salt in a sieve a couple of times and transfer it to a wide plate.  Add carom seeds to it.  DSCN0364                                                                            Sieved atta to which carom seeds is added

6. Transfer it to a serving plate applying a little ghee/butter and relish with any side dish of your choice and repeat it with the remaining daough.  DSCN0375                                                                             Barley roti with potato onion bhaji

Makes :10

Time taken: 30 minutes

Good to remember:  1. Both the atta should be very fine else it will not be binding to make a paliable dough and the roti will not be soft as well.

2.Use fresh atta for the dish for better taste.

3. One can relish with even chutney powder of your choice.
