As we all know, finger millet is very good for health. Regular usage of finger millet helps to keep our body cool. But it won't has a nice taste or aroma of its own. That's why many people won't like to eat or drink anything prepared using finger millet!
Long back, I had tasted Finger Millet Rotti in a hotel at Malleshwaram. Never I thought that finger millet rotti can be so tasty! Then, I tried my own version of rotti at home and it came out well. Not regularly, but sometimes I prepare this rotti for our breakfast. I love to add fenugreek leaves to this rotti, also you can substitute fenugreek with dill leaves.


Preparation time: 40 - 45 minutes
Servings: 2

Ingredients:
Finger millet flour - 1 3/4 cup
Grated carrot - 1
Shredded coconut - 1 cup
1 medium size onion - finely chopped
2 - 3 green chillies - finely chopped
Fenugreek leaves - 1 bunch
Salt to taste
Hot water - 1/2 to 3/4 cup
Oil

Method:
Clean the fenugreek leaves and chop them finely.
Transfer the finger millet flour to a mixing bowl. To this, add all the ingredients except salt and hot water and mix well.
Now, add hot water little by little and mix it nicely. Consistency should be the same as chapathi dough i.e., you should be able to make balls from the dough.
Let the dough rest for 10 - 15 minutes before making the rotti.
Make lemon size balls from the dough. Pat them thinly on a greased plastic sheet or plantain leaf. Make a hole in the middle of the rotti.
Cook the rotti on hot tava on both the sides. Add 1 - 2 spoons of oil while cooking.
Serve this rotti along with butter or any other side dish.


Tips:
  • You can substitute fenugreek leaves with dill leaves also.
