Roti for Diabetics
Singhara aata, we eat only during fasting. Did you know that it is completely gluten-free and does not cause an insulin spike?
100 g singhara atta or chestnut flour
100 g paneer (grated)
1 teaspoon coriander leaves (fresh)
4 tablespoons of ghee
A pinch of carrom seeds
1 finely chopped green chili
Pink salt as per taste
Knead the singhara atta (chestnut flour) into a dough. Keep it aside.
Take the grated paneer and add some herbs of your choice to it.
Mix the paratha dough and grated paneer together.
Roll the dough into a circular shape. Make sure that it is not too thin as a thin base may stick to the pan while frying.
Take a pan and heat the ghee in it.
Place the rolled paratha and fry both sides until golden brown.
Serve the parantha hot with butter cubes on it.

½ teaspoon jeera or cumin seeds
1 tablespoon oil
¾ cup water

3 cups finely sliced cabbage
½ cup bell pepper (shredded)

Once the seeds start cracking add the chopped vegetables.
Stir and fry them for around 3-4 minutes.
Add the spices and the lemon juice.
Take a skillet and pore in some of the batter. To make a perfect circle spread the batter in a spiral pattern from the centre to outward with a spatula.
Spread some oil on the batter and let it cook for at least 30 seconds.
Flip it to the other side cook until both sides are well fried. In order to keep the sides evenly cooked, press the sides with the spatula.
Once the cheela is cooked, put ½ a cup of fried vegetables diagonally across the centre of cheela.
The sumptuous cheela is ready to serve.
It tastes best when served with mango pickle.
