For the flatbreads:

  • 1 cup Organic Sphere's fresh ground, presoaked and dried browntop millet flour
  • 1/2 cup yellow moong dal (split yellow lentils), soaked for 2-3 hours
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onions
  • 2 green chilies, finely chopped (adjust to taste)
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped cilantro (coriander leaves)
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • Salt to taste
  • Water, as needed
  • Ghee or oil for cooking



For the accompaniment:

  • Yogurt
  • Pickles
  • Chutney


  1. Drain the soaked moong dal and rinse it thoroughly. Then, coarsely grind the moong dal in a food processor or blender. Set aside.

  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the Organic Sphere's fresh ground presoaked and dried browntop millet flour, coarsely ground moong dal, chopped onions, green chilies, chopped cilantro, cumin seeds, and salt.

  3. Gradually add water little by little and knead the mixture into a smooth dough. The dough should be soft but not sticky. Let the dough rest for about 15-20 minutes.

  4. Divide the dough into small lemon-sized balls.

  5. Heat a griddle or tawa over medium heat.

  6. Take a dough ball, flatten it slightly, and then roll it out into a thin circle, using a rolling pin and a little dry flour for dusting.

  7. Carefully transfer the rolled-out dough onto the hot griddle. Cook for about a minute or until you see bubbles forming on the surface.

  8. Flip the flatbread and cook the other side for another minute.

  9. Brush with ghee or oil on both sides and cook until the flatbread is golden brown and cooked through.

  10. Repeat the process with the remaining dough balls.

  11. Serve the Delicious Browntop Millet with Moong Dal Flatbreads hot with yogurt, pickles, or chutney.
