Spicy Broccoli Roti

I got creative today. To go with the pancharatna dal, I made some spicy Broccoli rotis. We had it with the dal, plain yogurt and some freshly sliced sweet mangoes.


To make the curry
Red Onion - 1 small cut length wise
Plum tomato - 1 cut length wise
Frozen Broccoli cuts - 1 cup
Jalapeño - 1 chopped fine
Ginger and garlic paste - 1 tsp
Chili powder - 1 tsp
turmeric - pinch
Salt - to taste
Sugar - a dash
Oil - as needed


Heat oil in a pan. Add the jalapeño and onions and saute them till onions are soft. Add ginger and garlic paste, tomatoes and broccoli cuts. Add 1/4 cup of water and cook them covered till broccoli pieces are soft. Remove the lid, add the chili powder, turmeric, salt and sugar. Saute for few minutes and turn the stove off. Let this mixture cool

To make the rotis:
Whole wheat flour - 2 to 3 cups
Olive oil - 1/8 cup
Salt - to taste
Water - 1/8 cup

In a food processor, add the curry and pulse till smooth adding olive oil and water while pulsing. Add the dough blade to this and mix in the whole wheat flour till it comes to the consistency of a roti mix or pizza dough but not too liquidy.

Knead the dough in a mixing bowl and using a roller pin make small rotis. Heat them on roti pan using oil or ghee. Serve hot.
