Barley Roti

I feel that incorporating the goodness of whole grains is a must in every household, be it in Baking or in normal day to day food. Since roti is a staple in my home, having it for dinner almost every other day, I try to bring about variation. Roti’s are one of the best ways of adding in different grains. I have already blogged about making roti with Oats. This time its Barley roti. I use Barley flour, along with whole wheat flour, which are available in everywhere, even in Indian stores. Instead of using plain water to knead the dough I use barley water. You can use the cooked barley as an alternative to plain white rice – for the same meal or refrigerate it and use the next day for salad prep, patties etc.

  • Cook time: Under 30 min
  • Prep time: Under 30 min
  • Serves: 2 people

  • 1 cup Barley flour
  • 1-1/2 cup whole wheat flour, plus extra for dusting,rolling etc
  • Barley water to knead the dough
  • salt to taste

1. Prepare barley water as shown in this post (skip the lemon).

2. Add the flours and salt together and stir well.

3. Add enough barley water to knead the dough. It should be soft and pliable.

4. Divide into small balls and using a rolling pin, roll it out into a circle to approximately 1/8 inches

5. Cook it into a medium-hot pan. Add little oil to help it stay soft.

6. Turn once golden brown with little spots appear in the bottom.
