Masala roti recipe - how to make masala roti - lunch box recipes

Masala roti recipe - Are you looking for a spicy roti recipe for lunch box, breakfast, lunch or dinner ? Here is the masala roti that goes well with any dry subzis, chutneys, chutney powder, curd and raitas. This masala roti is alternative to parathas, theplas and chapati. I have used coriander powder, jeera powder, garam masala, chilli powder,  turmeric powder, besan and curd along with wheat flour. This mildly spiced roti can be roasted till crisp to store for three  to four days. In case you like cilantro or mint flavor in roti, then add the same to the dough and get a different flavored roti. You can make wonderful masala lachcha paratha with this dough. Even you can dry the mint leaves in the oven and use the powdered mint leaves to sprinkle on the masala lachcha paratha and that also goes well with chutneys, chutney powder, curd, raitas and subzis. I will post that mint masala lachcha paratha recipe in due course.
