  • Sunflower seeds - 1/2cup (Grind the  sun flower seeds  , as we dont get  ready made flour)

  • Salt 1/4 tsp

  • Turmeric powder - 1/4tsp

  • Paneer crumbled - 80gm

  • Finely chopped coriander: 1/4 cup

  • Ghee  4 tsp

  • In a dry mixer jar , coarse grind  hulled sunflower seeds.( Do not grind  sunflower seeds  to fine flour) 

  • To the same mixer jar, add crumbled paneer , salt , turmeric  to the sunflower seed flour and pulse grind for 2-3 times, till  the paneer gets evenly crumbled and incorporated with the flour. 















( If using malai paneer, you can skip adding paneer into the mixer jar. as malai paneer is very soft, its better to mix and knead it in with the hand. in the pics, for the instructions I used malai paneer, so did not use mixer jar for mixing and kneading the paneer with the sunflower flour).

If  you are using store brought paneer, crumble it and add into the mixer jar for making the dough. please remember , once you add paneer  into the mixer jar, use  pulse mode )















  • Transfer  the dough mix  into a mixing bowl , add finely chopped coriander and knead well. At this stage the dough feels  little sticky. Do not worry, this is how it has to be. 

  • Keep it covered for 5 minutes.










  • Now, grease 2 parchment papers or plastic sheets,  and place the dough between 2 Parchment papers ,  make  a thick roti with the help of your palm or with rolling pin. Do not roll it thin, the  thinner you roll , it makes difficult to transfer  on to the hot tawa. So roll it thick .














  • Heat a nonstick griddle/tawa.

  • Carefully transfer the roti to the pre heated tawa , keep a lid and cook it on medium flame . Once the edges turn light brown, remove the lid.

  • Flip the roti to other side carefully , as this roti tends to break easily while turning to other side. (I noticed that, one has to be gentle with gluten free rotis) 


















  • Apply ghee before serving.

  • This roti tastes good  with paneer butter masala,  Boiled Egg burji gravy, Sarson ka saag , Palak pan​​eer , Tomato dal , Dal tadkha.
