We have never used multigrain atta before this is the first time i prepared multigrain atta roti the texture was a bit rough and dry not soft as expected and the taste is different compare to regular whole wheat roti. i prefer not to use multigrain atta for roti anymore i tried out couple of other recipes with the same flour it was a hit i will feature in my future episodes. you can try the same recipe using whole wheat flour its sure to be a hit normally i prepare the masala ahead of time and store it in the fridge and knead the dough just before preparing roti's.
