Rajasthani Tikkar Paratha / Gluten free

This Rajasthani Tikkar Paaratha is Gluten free version of usual Tikkar Paratha. Tikkar Paratha is a popular dish from the desert province of Rajasthan.  The uniqueness of this dish is that its added with tomatoes along with onions while kneading the flour.

To make it a gluten free version, I have tweaked the recipe here by substituting my gluten free flour mix instead of wheat flour and added a bit of besan to bring softness to the roti, as corn meal makes it a little dry. Though traditionally it is made  with maize flour mixed with wheat flour,

It’s a versatile, wholesome & healthy dish that you can have it either for breakfast or for lunch.  When served with curd and pickle it tastes delicious.

Welcome to my blog


February 10th is celebrated as World Pulses Day. I am an avid fan of whole pulses / lentils. When I took a review of my posts so far, I realised I have as of today posted 22 recipes using whole pulses & legumes. I decided to compile all those recipes and make an eBook that you can download from my site.
