Khamiri Roti.

Khamiri Roti is a traditional Indian bread that was a staple during the Mughal era. It is made with whole wheat flour, milk and yeast and is extremely soft and spongy. Yeast is called Khamir and thus the name. Khamiri Roti can be paired with any subzi of your choice or with just a blob of butter.

Ingredients :

1 Tbsp Dry Yeast

1 tsp Sugar

1 tsp salt

1/3 cup Water

2 cups wheat flour

2 tbsp Milk

1 tsp Oil

1 tsp black Sesame seeds

1 tsp Kalonji seeds

2 tbsp finely chopped Coriander leaves.


Take dry yeast in a bowl, add sugar and warm water to it. Mix well and leave the mixture aside for twenty minutes for it to rise..
Take flour in a large bowl and add the yeast mixture to it. Add salt and milk, mix thoroughly and begin to knead the dough adding a little water at a time. Add oil, knead thoroughly and leave it covered for about two hours. After two hours give a quick knead and roll out into poori sized discs. Sprinkle sesame seeds, kalonji and coriander leaves on these discs and roll it further into desired shape. Heat a tava/ griddle. Place the roti gently on the tava and roast till it turns a golden brown. Flip and roast the other side as well. Brush with butter and serve the Khamiri roti with a dish of your choice.
