Do you have many vegetables in your refrigerator that you want to finish quickly? Or, do you want to make something tasty and healthy in a jiffy? Either way, this recipe is something that kids and adults will enjoy at anytime.
My mother made it occasionally when I was a kid. Years later, I had it in a slightly different form in a restaurant. That day, I went back home and asked my mother to make it again and learnt the recipe. I make this dish frequently at home now and believe me my family loves it :-)
Wheat flour – 1 cup
Onion – 1 chopped finely
Green chillies – 3 chopped finely
Garlic – 1 tsp chopped finely
Ginger – 1 tsp chopped finely
Green peas – ½ cup
Potato – 1 cup finely chopped
Green beans – ½ cup finely chopped
Bell peppers – 1 cup finely chopped (I used all three colors)
Tomato – 1 finely chopped
Oil – 3 tbsp
Turmeric powder – ¼ tsp
Chilli powder – 1 tbsp
Chaat Masala – 1 tsp
Garam Masala – ½ tsp
Knead the flour with some water and oil nicely, to make smooth dough. Keep the dough covered until the vegetable filling is ready.
In a pan, heat oil. Sauté the onions, garlic, ginger and green chillies nicely. Add salt, turmeric powder, chilli powder, garam masala, chat masala, and mix well. Add the chopped tomatoes and cook for a minute or two. Now add the rest of the vegetables and mix well. Cover the pan and cook on medium heat for ten minutes. Cook the vegetable filling until all the water is soaked up. Remove from the stove and cool the filling.
Divide the dough and the filling into equal parts. Heat a flat tawa or griddle. Roll out a ball of dough to make a round roti. Now keep the vegetable filling in the roti and fold the sides. Roll out the stuffed dough again to make a flat, round roti. Now cook this stuffed roti in the tawa.
Serve hot, stuffed roti with tomato sauce or green chutney.
