Missi roti, a well known Rajasthani dish is made with a combination of flours, besan (gram flour) being one of the them. Missi roti with any spicy vegetable/ pickle/ launji makes for a delicious meal. There are many variations to this roti. It is sometimes prepared by adding methi leaves (fenugreek leaves). In this recipe, I have used coriander leaves.

½ cup Bengal gram flour( besan)
¼ cup chopped fresh coriander leaves
1 tsp cumin seeds (jeera)
½ tsp carom seeds (ajwain)
