Redchilly powder-1tsp
Vangi bhath powder/garam masala-1tsp

For Roti:
Wheat flour-1cup
salt to taste
Water to knead
Salt to taste

Knead the atta in to a smooth dough and leave it for half an hour.
Take a kadai,add one 1tsp of oil,add the onion fry for one minute,add all the ingredients and cook for 3minutes.
Roll the dough in to two rotis and stuff the filling inside and cover it with another roti.Seal the sides with water.
Cook it on a slow flame by adding little oil till both the sides are well cooked.
It goes well even with a cup of curd.
Tasty and  healthy parotta is ready!!!!!
