GET YOUR VEGGIES IN!
Adding veggies to your normal food intake without noticing much of a flavor difference seems too good to be true right? Well, think again!
I hide vegetables in my toddler’s rotli ALL THE TIME. She thinks its pretty when she does notice it :). Then again, she loves her vegetables so I must be doing something right. OR that’s what I’d like to think. One of my go to rotli recipe for her is an addition of zucchini to the dough. In this recipe, there is no guess work and there is also no water to be added. Serve it with a side of my okra or sprouted mung beans recipe.
If you don’t like my dough consistency, no hard feelings. I’ve just given an idea and hope that it helps someone out. Play around with the dough and form it to your preference.
TIP: You can use avocado or coconut oil to add an extra healthy fat to the mix.
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 4 tbsp pureed zucchini (equivalent to 1/4 cup)
- 2 tsp oil
- 1/4 cup water
- optional salt
- optional ground chia seeds
- optional ground flax seeds
- dusting all purpose flour
Divide into 9 sections and form into small balls using the palm of your hands.
Heat a pan on medium-high heat.
Dust each with all purpose flour and roll out into a 6" diameter rotli. TIP: the thickness of the rotli can determine its ability to inflate during the cooking process.
Once rolled out, place the rotli on the hot pan. Wait about 20 seconds and flip over. Wait about 40 seconds and then place the cooler side down over an open flame and let it rise SIDE NOTE: be sure the pan is hot before starting the cooking process.
Serve as is, topped with ghee, or topped with un/salted butter.
