Chickpea Spinach Roti

Besan ki Roti or Chickpea Flour bread is common in some household and is a delicacy in some. I usually make it using Gram Flour and mix it Whole Wheat or if you prefer to make it Gluten Free, you can use Oats Flour too.

My family enjoys this roti with Mushroom Peas Stew(Mushroom Matar Subzi) and/or with Tomato Chili Chutney. The protein rich roti is also favorite for my kids as they at times enjoy it with ketchup.
