Today’s post is Dashmi Roti and a Savory Version of the same.Dashmi Roti is supposed to be a flatbread from the Maharashtrian cuisine and apparently there are two versions – Sweet and the savory ones.

I decided to make the savory version for this event.This is made of whole wheat flour, besan and some basic spices. It is a very filling paratha and stays well after a while as well. So it is good to be packed for the lunch box as well.

After making this Roti, I had a sudden urge to change the dish for D. I saw a dahiwali roti recipe and wanted to make it as I felt it will be a bit different! Then after a small discussion with Vaishali, I stuck to this Dashmi Roti | Savory Version.

Today when I was looking for other flatbreads starting with D that I have posted earlier on the blog, I was surprised to see that I have already posted it in 2013!

And this is not the first time .I did the same for another event-Cooking from cookbook challenge, where I looked for a recipe and prepared it and then clicked pics as well.

Before uploading the pics and writing a post, I just browsed through the blog only to find the recipe already being posted! So I just updated the pics in the old post and kept quiet!

So this time,I did not know if I wanted to laugh or cry! On one hand, I never remember what I have posted during the past 10 years and on the other hand I was happy that I did not change the dish!

I have made a mental note to search my blog first before assuming that I have not posted it before.

For now I am happy to be posting something different and traditional in this series! Apart from it tasting yum, it needs no separate side dish. A bowl of curd and some pickle will suffice!!

Take a look at the other flat breads that start with D

Here is how to prepare Dashmi Roti | Savory Version

I used

Whole wheat flour – 1 cup
Besan -1/4 cup
Coriander-cumin powder-1/2 teaspoon
Red chili powder- 1.2 teaspoon
Asafoetida powder- 1/8 teaspoon
Oil-1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder- 1/4 teaspoon

  1. Take all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well
  2. Add water little by little and knead to a semi stiff dough.
  3. Divide the dough into equal sized balls.
  4. Roll out each ball into a circle and cook on a heat griddle / tawa till brown spots appear on both sides.
  5. Remove from griddle and serve hot with yogurt / raita and pickle / chutney.

  1. Dashmi Roti sounds delicious , the besan must have enhanced the flavor in the roti . I haven’t tried this Indian flatbread as yet and I have put it in my to do list .

    10 years of blogging is a long time , and some recipes might get repeated , it only shows how much you like them :))

  2. Hahaha, talk about the life of a food blogger. We read so many recipes and we try so many that we get too confused about which we made and which we read. The dashmi roti sounds so spicy and yum. Nice pick for the day..

  3. You are hardly to blame PJ…with 10 years worth of recipes, it is amazing you find so many new dishes all the time! Love thi dashmi roti…looks like a lunch box regular ! Yum yum

  4. With all those spice powders went in it am sure this dashmi rotis with some spicy curries can makes a super filling meal for anyone. Haha guess this same story happened to me also. Hard to track sometimes na.

  5. Good one, PJ. I always check my blog before preparing any dish and sometimes after taking the pictures, I check and as you mention, just update the pictures. It is practically impossible to remember, so don’t worry too much:)

  6. I have been making this roti since ages and didn’t know it is called Dashmi roti in Maharashtra. Should I cry at the lack of my knowledge of other cuisines. I know how delicious it tastes…my family favorite. I just need a cup of tea to enjoy this roti

  7. wow this is awesome to have such a long time in blogging. I keep wondering how people remembers what all they posted. as u cant look at recipe index.
    Dashmi roti looks delicious for sure.

  8. Dashmi roti is new to me and I’m glad you shared the savory version as it would be nice t serve it with a curry or sabji. I too sometimes get pictures and everything ready, only to realize that I have the recipe on the blog. That’s why after this BM gets over I have to spend time doing up my recipe index. I’ve made a dahi paratha and it was so delicious.

  9. happens to me all the time and I too decided that I should check first and the plan out..your dahiwala roti sounds too good, will have to make it sometime…and Dashmi Roti is a good option!
