Rajma Roti (Kidney beans flat bread)

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
When I came to know about the event going on in Sandhya's Kitchen, there were only 2 days left. I kept on thinking what to make with Kidney beans? It is not regular in my home, as my kids do not like this one(Except kidney beans and kabuli chana, other legumes are most welcome any time.)
I surfed the web also for the recipe, but did not get any special food. Some sites had Kidney beans paratha. But I thought of making rotti or flat bread with it.
With that I thought adding some fat to my body! So prepared Paneer bhurji and Sai dal.
Its very healthy and my kids did not realize what they were having but both enjoyed the roti with Paneer bhurji.
Ingredients :
Kidney beans : 1 cup
(Soaked for 6 to 8 hours and fully cooked)
Or if using canned ones, just remove and keep aside.
Take the cooked beans and put in a blender or mixi to make smooth paste. Keep it ready.
For dough :
Wheat flour - 1 cup or more as per the kidney beans
Salt to taste
Dry ginger powder - 1 tsp
Red chilly powder - 1 to 2 tsp
Dry Mango powder (Amchur powder) - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder
Oil - 1 tsp
Water to knead the dough
Oil to roast the rotis
Mix Wheat flour, ready paste and all other things except water and  the oil to roast each roti, in a big plate or vessel. Add the water slowly to make the soft dough.
Keep it aside for 5 to 10 minutes.
Divide the dough into small equal balls.
Take one ball roll into chapati size.
Heat tawa and roast both the side with oil.(You can dry roast it if you do not like to add the oil in your diet) 
Serve with pickle or curds.
Sending this to
(linking it to BSI and to this event announcement.)

And Sharing this bread with one more event Announcing - My Legume Love Affair 27

Keep Smiling,
