Ajwain is a seed which has strong odor and used in very little quantity. Its very good for indigestion. I used to eat or chew the ajwain and blow it into my kid's naval when ever they had indigestion problem or stomach pain!It works.
Read more here about Ajwain which is commonly known as carrom seeds also.
Now coming to my recipe, this was common breakfast when we were young! Mom used make it often, but most of the times she used to fry it in hot oil and store it for evening tea or while travelling.
Being a health conscious person I make only chapatis and eat. My elder daughter loves it.
Wheat flour - 2 cups
Whole grain flour - 1/2 cup(if available)
Gram flour - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Turmeric powder a pinch
Red chilly powder - 1 to 2 tsp
Ajwain seeds - 1tsp, crushed
Oil - 1 tbsp
Water to make dough
Oil to roast chapatis
Ghee to spread on chapatis
Take all the ingredients except water in a big bowl or plate. Add water to make smooth dough.
Keep the dough for half an hour.
Divide the dough in to small balls.
Roll into desired size with medium thickness.
Roast the chapatis both the sides.
Remove and spread 1 tsp of ghee. It keeps the chapati soft. And good for kids.
Repeat with other dough.
Perfect for lunch box for kids.
