It’s already Monday! I am looking forward to using all of my Farmer’s Market Finds, and making a beautiful salad full of vitamins and antioxidants and then digging into the Saag Paneer I made yesterday. Indian food always tastes better the next day. It’s no secret that fruits and vegetables contain tons of antioxidants that boost your body’s abilities to repair itself. Vainly, lets get to the heart of the topic, fruits and vegetables make you beautiful. All of those fancy creams, lotions and potions that you spend a good portion of your paycheck on, contain vitamins and collagen! Imagine the miracles real, unprocessed, plant-based foods can do for your looks and body. Tighter skin, shinier hair, brighter smile…all by just doing what you need to do to survive-eat (real food)!
–Saag Paneer with buckwheat rotis (non-authentic)
Traditional roti is made with whole wheat flour and rolled very thin making them light, fluffy, and soft. I have used buckwheat flour, since it nutritionally has a higher content of protein (7g) and fiber (7g). If you are used to eating traditional rotis, the taste is something you have to get used to, but the health rewards are worth it.
1 cup buckwheat flour
1/4 tsp salt (optional)
1 tbsp olive or canola oil
1/3 cup warm water
All-purpose flour – for rolling and dusting
