N for Nariyal, this is my today’s entry for month long mega marathon under theme ‘A to Z Indian flatbreads’ that I’m taking part in. It was difficult for me to find a flatbread starting with letter N (though more difficult letters are yet to come). I kept on thinking and searching, then it came to my mind that I have heard word nachni somewhere. Nachni word is used for ragi flour, so I decided to make nachni roti.
My condition is very funny these days, I keep on mumbling words starting with difficult letters like Q, U – Z all the time in the hope that some word may fit into my theme. This mega marathon has made me crazy.
Anyway, I was still not satisfied with nachni, the reason being that if there is only this word then most, if not all will be participating with nachni flour as the base. Finally another word ‘Nariyal’ came to my mind and I decided to make nariyal wali meethi roti. My father in law is very fond of meethi roti, that way I’ll be able to make him happy as well.
Our Sunday brunch is mostly poori with chole or aloo ki sabzi, but for a change I made this nariyal wali meethi roti. When mom, dad came back from satsang, they were delighted to see their favorite meethi roti with mango pickle. It was a real charm to see the smile on hearing the name of it. I think, I should make it more frequently to make them happy 🙂
