Madwe ki roti || Finger millet flour roti ||Gluten free ragi roti
Today I am sharing a recipe from the foothills of Himalayas. A very tasty Madwe ki Roti, Madwa or Finger millet is very commonly eaten in Kumaon and Garhwal Hills. The ‘Taseer’ of this millet is Hot. Therefore, it is very popular in mountains.
MY FOOD TRAVEL
Recently, I got the chance to visit kumaon (Uttarakhand). It is known for its spell-binding views of the Himalayas, peaceful retreats in the wild and impatient rivers, waterfalls and lakes. Alas! everything was just amazingly beautiful.
I throughly enjoyed the mesmerizing beauty of kumaon. Thereafter, I went for the search of tempting Kumaoni cuisine. In addition to the regular pulses, a wide range of pulses like urad (black lentil), chana (black gram), gahat (horse gram) and bhatt (black and white soyabean) are used in Kumaon, often in conjunction, to create mouth-watering recipes which are usually enjoyed with rice.
Further, even lentils like Chudkani (black soyabean), bhatiya (white soyabean) and ras (a combination of black lentil, black gram, horse gram and black soyabean) are some of the much loved dishes commonly prepared in Kumauni kitchens.
Since we stayed at Ranikhet, I got a chance to enjoy almost all the mouthwatering dishes. Although I loved to eat all the tasty kumaoni food, I desperately wanted to learn how to cook these dishes as well. Luckily, I got an opportunity to learn these dishes from one of my good kumaoni friends Madhu Bakuni. She is an amazing cook and cooked all the amazing dishes for me again! She also taught me how to make them.

- Wet your hands with water and spread your hands on the top side of the roti. This is to keep the rotis soft even after few hours of making.Cook on both sides and if needed add a drop of oil.
