Rajgira Roti

Rajgira Roti is a type of Indian flatbread made with amaranth flour (rajgira flour) and water. It is often consumed during religious fasts as it is made with ingredients that are allowed during fasting. Rajgira Roti is a popular dish in many parts of India, and it is considered to be a nutritious and healthy alternative to traditional roti made from wheat flour.

Here is a basic recipe for making Rajgira Roti:


  • 1 cup Rajgira flour (amaranth flour)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Water as required
  • Oil or ghee for cooking


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the Rajgira flour and salt.
  2. Slowly add water to the flour mixture and knead until a smooth dough is formed.
  3. Cover the dough and let it rest for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Divide the dough into small balls, about the size of a golf ball.
  5. Using a rolling pin, roll out each ball of dough into small, round rotis.
  6. Heat a tawa or griddle over medium heat.
  7. Cook the rotis on the hot tawa, adding a little oil or ghee to each side as you cook them, until they are golden brown and crispy.
  8. Serve hot with a side of your choice, such as a vegetable curry or dal.

Note: You can also add other ingredients like grated ginger
