I feel that incorporating the goodness of whole grains is a must in every household, be it in Baking or in normal day to day food. Since roti is a staple in my home, having it for dinner almost every other day, I try to bring about variation. Roti's are one of the best ways of adding in different grains. I have already blogged about making roti with Oats. This time its Barley roti. I use Barley flour, along with whole wheat flour, which are available in everywhere, even in Indian stores. Instead of using plain water to knead the dough I use barley water. You can use the cooked barley as an alternative to plain white rice - for the same meal or refrigerate it and use the next day for salad prep, patties etc.
Bajra is Millet while Barley I think is called as "Jaun" in hindi --DK
This is not the regular chapathi bread. That's made usually with Wheat flour. This is another type - one is made with Barley
