Stuffed vegetable roti

I saw this recipe in one of the TV shows some 2 months back. This is a very healthy dish with lot of vegetables and the rice flour. While I was watching the show, I was wondering, why the guest for that day on the show is using such a big procedure to make it. I mean I was surprised about the use of maida in this, but when I prepared this myself, I came to know that without maida, it would have been very difficult to make roti with the stuffing. Just give it a try and I am sure you will like it.

Maida 1 cup
Rice flour 2 cups
Grated vegetables (Radish, carrot,onion) 2 cups
Red chilli powder 1 tea spn
Jeera(Cumin seeds) 1 tea spn
Coriander leaves 6-7 strands

Make dough with maida and water. Keep aside.
Take 1 tbl spn of rice flour, add 3 tbls spns of water and salt. Cook on low flame stirring continuously for about 5 minutes(till the rice flour is cooked and becomes a smooth paste). Remove from flame. Add grated vegetables, chilli powder, cumin seeds, chopped coriander leaves and remaining rice flour to make it to chapathi flour consistency.
Take a small ball of maida, spread it like a poori with hand, take a ball(ping pong ball sized) of vegetable-rice dough and stuff it into the maida poori. Cover completely and roll it into rotis(the rotis should be thick like paratha).
Fry on tava applying oil on both sides. Serve hot with coconut chutney or pickles.

Serves : 3
Preparation time : 20-30 min

    hi anonymous,
    In India, super refined wheat flour is called maida. This flour is used to make a wide variety of food items like puri, chappathi, parotta, etc. Maida is sometimes referred to as “All purpose flour”.

      While cooking, only one table spoon is added. In the recipe it is mentioned to add remaining rice flour after adding vegetables.
