Lobiya( Black eyed Beans) Roti with Carrot raita

You can even pack for KIDS LUNCH BOX  with Carrot Raita:

 For a change you can replace your Phulka or Paratha with these Lobiya( Black eyed Bean ) roti . Just mix every thing and prepare roti . No need to rest dough . To get round and even roti I used Ziplock bag and round bowl . If you have a big pan you can fry 4 medium roti’s at one go . The roti’s are not going to dry because I added good amount of Vegetables and they are going to stay soft at room temperature. You can serve them for Morning Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner. If you want to pack for Kids Lunch Box pack with Carrot raita. It takes only 5 minutes to prepare raita . Refrigerate and comes to room temperature by Lunch time.


                 Heat 1 tbsp Oil and add Cumin seeds followed by Chopped tomato ( One ) . Season with little Salt and Rasam Powder or Sambar Powder . Once tomatoes are soft add Grated carrot and Mix. Switch off the stove. Cool before adding to Yogurt . Add this Cooked vegetable to 2 cups of Yogurt(Curd) , finely chopped Onions and Coriander . Check for Salt and spices and add accordingly . You can even add Green chilli paste and Chopped ginger.
