Hariyali Saat Dhan ki Roti is a healthy roti made with seven grains . It is enriched with loads of greens like spinach , fenugreek and coriander .
Saat Dhan ki Roti is a popular recipe of Tarla Dalal and while browsing her book on Parathas I decided to give a twist to the paratha by adding greens and some different spices and hence called it Hariyali Saat Dhan ki Roti and chose it for the theme Flatbreads and More .
Saat means seven and Dhan are grains so we are making a roti / paratha using seven grains . I have used wheat , rice , jowar , bajra, ragi , besan and makai / maize flour . I used all in equal proportion , but you can vary as per your choice . I added equal amount of spinach and fenugreek , but these too can vary . Each grain has its own benefits and mixing them with greens takes the roti to a different level altogether . The roti is super healthy .
The rpti is a meal by itself but I wanted to add some protein and fun element too , so served the seven grain roti with a simple daal , Rajasthani Kadhi ,Bharwa Simla Mirch and Samosa Chat . ( yes , Samosa Chat is the fun element here ) .
My daughter was here when I made these and she loved them . She felt there was no need of any kadhi , daal or sabzi . I could have got away by adding yogurt as protein and pickle as fun element !
