This nutritious, easy item can make a fabulous breakfast or tiffin. Amaranth is rich in vitamin A, antioxidants, iron, potassium, vitamin k, and fibre. If you use home roasted brown rice and grind it into a flour, its a pretty good source of fibre and protien too. If you don’t have the time or inclination to do that, white rice flour can work too!
Grind coarsely in mixie:
2 sprig curry leaves
2 – green chilli
handful shallots or ¼ oninon
handful chopped green amaranth (green maath)
Put the ground mixture in a bowl and add:
1 tablespoon grated fresh coconut
1/4 cup rice flour
½ tsp jeera
Grease a cold tava lightly, place half of batter on the tava, and spread into a thin roti. Once spread, make a small whole in the middle and turn on the falme. When the tava gets hot, drizzle a little oil in the hole and around the roti. Cook covered for a minute or so, then flip an cook till crisp.
Serve with chutney or pickle.
