2 ¼ cups whole wheat flour (atta)
2 ¼ cups Gram flour(besan)
½ cups Yoghurt hung in a muslin cloth
1tsp Carom (ajwain) seeds
1tsp Red chili powder
½ tsp Cumin (jeera) seeds
Salt to taste
2 tbsp Ghee
Mix all the ingredients accept ghee in a large bowl. Knead the mixture with a little water, at a time, into a semi-soft dough. Divide the dough into 15 portions and roll each out to a 4”diameter disc. Heat a griddle (tawa); roast the disc evenly on both sides. Now remove the griddle from the heat and roast the disc directly on the flame on both side till well done but not burnt. Remove and repeat with the other discs. Smear 1tsp ghee on each disc and serve hot. Variations: Finely chopped spinach or fenugreek leaves can be added to the dough, to give color to the missi roti.
Life always gives big opportunities in the form of small hints. The big move in Pankaj Bhadouria’s life came with a small step when she decided to leave her successful teaching career spanning over 16 years and enter India's 1st televised cookery reality show - MasterChef India on the leading GEC - Star Plus.
And as they say, fortune favours the brave, Pankaj went on to become a worthy winner and with it India's first ever MasterChef.
The comfort of the classroom gave way to the adulations, accolades and a host of achievements. Pankaj hosted her first cookery show - "Chef Pankaj ka Zayka" on Star Plus during Sep-Oct 2011 where she showcased her passion for cooking. The success of this daily show added another flavor to her sweet success.
