Besan Ki Roti (Gramflour-Chickpea Flatbread)

‘Besan ki Roti’ or Chickpea Flour Roti is a quick and easy recipe to eat with curry or vegetables. You can enjoy them at any meal or make them for party or get-together. I have customized it by mixing gram flour(besan) with some whole wheat flour (atta) as this version is much more easier to make, healthier and lighter on tummy as ‘Only Chickpea Flour‘ roti’s tends to crumble while making and sometimes result in bloating. Besan-ki-roti

Storage: The dough for this Roti/Bread can be stored in an air-tight container in fridge for 2-3days.

  5. After both sides are browned for 1 minute each, remove the pan and put the roti on high flame, keep tossing it on both sides till they fluff up and evenly golden brown.

Notes

* For Glutenfree - You may use any glutenfree flour in place of whole wheat flour.

** If you don't have a flame gas, you can continue cooking the roti/bread on same nonstick pan by turning on either sides and pressing it a little on the side up using a dish towel.

    I am always curious about the flame part when I have a electric stove. Would you just continue with high heat to make it puff, or will it not work with the besan flour?

      Hi Mary, you can definitely cook the roti's on high flame. Just need to be quick as they might burn.

        I assumed as much, but thanks for letting me know for sure. I do not have much experience with besan.

    Are you sure the measurements are right (flour to water). The paste I got with this recipe can't be rolled. I added perhaps as much as another cup of flour to get something I could work with. Plus, I reserved 3 Tbsp of water to begin with (I assumed that's what you meant when you said "Keep 2-3 Tbsp extra." I'm really interested in this recipe. Thanks for any help you can give. Also, I can hardly read the recipe because the social networking icons cover up the measurements.

      Molly, I'm sorry, my first comment was a bit blunt. I apologize. I'm really happy to find this recipe because I like the larger percentage of besan flour to whole wheat flour. I would really love to be able to make it work. Plus, I figured out what I was doing wrong with the website. By zooming in I created my own problem with the social networking icons on the side. Nothing wrong with your website, just me. Thank you for the recipe.

        OMG Sally, that is SUPER SWEET of you and please, you don't have to say sorry. I do regret the error on the recipe, which is now corrected and the social share does act weird at times. This was actually one of my initially published recipes (2012) and our favorite flatbread recipe. I really hope you do make it soon and please feel free to write to me, I'm always happy to help :)

      Hi Sally, Thanks for writing in and I'm so sorry that the dough didn't turn out right. Although, I'm so glad you brought it to my notice, the water used for the dough is actually 1/2 cup (there was an error and it's fixed). I hope you do give it try again. As for the social share, maybe at times they do act weird, please do try refresh the page - Thanks so much.

      Hi Anita, I'm so happy you tried these rotis. Besan/Chickpea has a tendency to dry...I would suggest brushing them with a tsp of oil/butter once they are made. This will make them softer and of course more tasty :) Hugs, Molly
