Rajgira paratha recipe | How to make rajgira paratha/roti

Amaranth flour or rajgire ka atta is usually eaten during the Hindu fast or vrat or upvaas. This is not restricted to make only for vrat. You can make this on regular basis as well. Rajgira is healthy and nutritious

We do not eat this on our regular diet. In my childhood whenever we keep fast in my family, my mom makes puri or paratha using this flour. She also makes rajgira sheera as a dessert. The sheera was my favorite one.

As the Navratri is going on. and we are keeping the fast for nine days. I have made this yesterday to go with this vratwali aloo ki sabji. This was our meal.

This flour is gluten free, so it is little hard to work with. The rolling part is not easy like our regular paratha or chapati. Because of its crumbly nature, you will not get the smooth edges. So do your best, keep sealing the edges and keep rolling. Be gentle while rolling it.

Yogurt is added in the dough which makes the soft paratha. It stays soft even after it cools down. So you can pack this in the lunch box a well.

6) If needed then use water to knead a dough. I used 2 tablespoons of water. And make a ball. The water quantity may vary depending on the how much moisture is present in your potato. This dough is crumbly. So don’t worry if you are not able to make smooth dough.
