Lesu is a flat bread from Garhwal which is prepared by stuffing Mandua dough into Wheat flour dough and eaten with ghee. I had made mandua ki roti the last time I made a meal from Uttarkhand, but stuffing it to wheat dough was new to me. I do remember my friends posting the Lesu. I wanted to give it another twist by adding some spices and herbs, but I omitted as traditionally they do not add any spice to Mandua. It has to be eaten simply with ghee .
Lesu is also a very popular breakfast in the hilly region. This flat bread is a part of my Uttarkhand Thali.


2 cups wheat flour
3/4 cup mandua flour
1/8 tsp carom seeds
Salt to taste


Knead wheat flour and keep aside.
Mix carom seeds and salt to mandua flour and knead. (Keep it aside)
Take wheat flour dough and stuff with mandua flour dough.
Roll into chappati and cook on a griddle.
