Rajgira roti is a gluten-free dish prepared using Amarnath flour or Rajgira flour. Though typically prepared during fasting festivals such as Navratri or Mahashivrati – don’t stop yourself from trying this healthy recipe whenever you feel like it!

Ingredients:

  • 3/4th cup Rajgira (Amaranth) flour
  • 2 Small or 1 large potato
  • ½ teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1 or 2 green chillies, finely chopped
  • Rock salt (Sendha Namak) as required
  • Ghee or oil as required

Method:

  • Boil potatoes in a steamer or pressure cooker till they are thoroughly cooked and of mashable consistency.
  • Peel the slightly warm potatoes and mash them lightly with rajgira flour.
  • Then add finely chopped green chillies, cumin powder and rock salt. You can also add coriander and ginger paste and mix well – but that’s optional.
  • Add 1 or 2 tablespoons of water in parts and make a smooth dough. Add as much as water as needed depending on the amount of flour you use. 
  • Allow dough to cool down to room temperature (as it will be slightly warm because of the warm potatoes)

Method of rolling Rajgira roti:

  • Make small or medium-sized balls from the dough, dust with rajgira flour.
  • Roll to small or medium-sized paratha, while rolling add some flour if required.
  • Then gently lift with a spatula and roast the paratha on the hot tawa.

Tip – Use a non-stick pan or well-seasoned pan as a paratha might stick.

Serve these rajgira roti hot or warm with curd for fasting.
