vegetable roti

Vegetable roti is a mouth-watering and healthy dish. On the taste side, onion, jeera, chili and coconut gratings get the maximum credit. On the health front, the gratings of the vegetables like beetroot and carrot take the top honors. If you want to make a roti that's different, yet good for the taste buds and the body, consider vegetable roti.

In the vegetable roti recipe, wheat flour is a main ingredient in addition to the vegetables. Beetroot, carrot, bottle gourd and onion are some of the vegetables that add a healthy dimension to this food. You can also use, for example, cucumber and chow chow gratings.

Relish vegetable roti, when it's hot, as is. If you do need a side dish, palak chutney, puli inji or til chutney are among the chutneys that can fly the taste of this roti to a greater height.

Want to use a side dish, but have no time or interest to make it? Mix idli podi, also known as milagai podi or chutney pudi, with ghee and savor the vegetable roti.
