Delicious recipe! Now I can make missi roti in my own home! Some notes: I used atta flour for the wheat flour. Also, this recipe needs water -- about a cup and a half of warm water, added after step 3/as part of step 4. A few translations and conversions for other USAian folks: - Besan is gram flour. - Dhaniya powder is powdered coriander. - Jeera powder is powdered cumin. - Kala jeera is translated as black cumin, but it isn't a variation of cumin -- it's another spice entirely. - NO translation for ajwain. As with the other ingredients, look for it in an Indian grocery store -- you should be able to find them all at once!
