Recipe Description: Multi grain flour is very useful to lose weight. Instead of buying the ready made multigrain flour, I prefer preparing this at home. Please follow the below ratios of different grains to get the perfect multi-grain flour.
For the flour
- Wheat (Gehoon): 1 kg
- Bengal Gram (Chana dal): 50 g
- Oats: 50 g
- Corn Kernel Grains (Makai ka dana): 50 g
- Pearl Millet (Bajra): 25 g
- Sorghum (Jowar): 25 g
- Finger Millet (Ragi): 25 g
- Soy Bean: 25 g
- Multi grain flour: 2 cups for 6 chapatis
- Salt: ½ teaspoon
- Water: ¾ Cup or as required
- Oil / Butter / Ghee: 1 teaspoon and as required for greasing
For the flour
- Separately grind all the grains and then in a big container mix it all nicely.
- You may buy the grinded powders of the grains and then mix them in the same ratio as mentioned above.
- You may grind in more amounts and save it for later. I usually multiple each grains’ amount by 10. Then mix all and save it in a big container for daily use.
- For 6 chapatis, take 2 cups of flour in a bowl.
- Add salt and mix well.
- Using water, knead a soft dough.
- Add oil and knead again.
- Cover the dough with a wet cloth and keep it aside for 10 minutes.
- Divide the dough into 6 equal portions and roll into balls.
- Roll each ball into 6-inch diameter circle.
- Heat Tawa and place the chapati on the tawa
- Flip the chapati after 30 seconds
- If you want you can grease both sides with little oil/ghee or butter.
- Cook until both sides are evenly done with golden brown spots (not black).
- Serve hot, or, keep them in a casserole or wrap them up in a kitchen towel or napkin to serve later.
