Missi Roti – Rajasthani Bread

This Missi Roti, I made it as a part of IFC challenge. Missi Roti is a Rajasthani bread which has perfect blend of spices, very flavorful and aromatic. The main ingredient behind the rich flavors and the exotic aroma of Rajasthani food is the use of ghee (traditional Indian clarified butter) in making almost all the dishes. Once again thanks a lot Mrs. Manjula for the wonderful challenge. Now let’s move on to the recipe.

Moong Dal Vadai - Rajasthani Cuisine/Moong Dal Vadai Recipe/Paasi Paruppu Vadai Recipe/How to make Moong Dal Vadai with step by step photos

For this month’s IFC challenge we are exploring Rajasthani cuisine chosen by Mrs.Manjula of Desi Fiesta. Thanks a lot Shobana, Saraswathi and Manjula for all the wonderful challenges.

Rajasthani cuisine or Marwari recipes is a splendid array of unique, rich, colourful, spicy curries and mouth-watering delectable sweets. This style of cooking, is not only the mirror of wealth and prosperity, but also reflects the traditional warrior lifestyles [the Rajputs] and the availability of ingredients in this water starved region. Food that last for several days was given more preference. Due to the scarcity of water, the cuisine involves use of milk, yogurt or buttermilk to wet the gravies. Instead of greens, they use different types of local berries. The use of lentils and legumes, mainly Jowar, Bajra and Gram flour in their food keeps the nutritional value very high. Once cooked, these most of the traditional Rajasthani vegetables can be eaten over days and don’t need refrigeration for weather condition over there keep the food good. For this month’s challenge Mrs. Manjula Bharat chose a royal festive spread of Rajasthani recipes and I chose to do few Moong dal Vadai, Missi Roti, Jaipuri Sabji for the challenge. Do check out other Vadai Varieties here.
