Delicious and healthy, this Soy Roti is a great item to add to your healthy vegetarian meals! Soybeans are rich in carbohydrates, fiber, protein, and also contain omega-3 fatty acids, and folic acid.
Soybean flour is available in Indian grocery stores.
Servings: 4-5 (makes 8-10 rotis)
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
- 3/4 cups soybean flour
- 1 1/4 cups wheat flour
- Salt to taste
- 1 tsp vegetable oil
- In a medium mixing bowl, mix the flours, salt, and enough water to make a soft, smooth dough. Knead well. Coat with 1 tsp oil and cover and set aside for 10 minutes.
- Heat a tava, iron or nonstick griddle on medium heat.
- While the griddle is heating up, divide the dough into 10 portions and roll each portion between your palms to form a smooth ball.
- Roll each ball with a little oil on a flat surface until smooth. Roll the ball in flour, flatten, and using a rolling pin, roll into a thin (approximately) 6-inch round flatbread, using a little flour if needed.
- Place the soy roti on the heated tava. Turn up the heat to high, and cook for 10-20 seconds it forms up a bit; turn it over and cook on the other side, pressing with a spatula gently along the edges as it puffs up, and cook until the underside is lightly browned. Flip over and cook until brown spots appear. Brush with a little oil and cook on both sides for a few seconds and serve the soy roti immediately, or place on a serving platter and cover to keep it soft until ready to serve. Repeat with the remaining dough balls.
