Jowar- roti
Jowar roti | jowar ki roti | jolada roti is a gluten free roti recipe made with sorghum flour. Jowar atta is found commonly in all Indian grocery stores. Jowar roti is a very healthy roti and can be easily made too. Just it needs few times of practise and i am sure you can master in making jowar ki roti. I tried thsi roti few months back and it was a big flop show. I ended up wasting the flour. After that i didn't attempt. After that one of my friend was asking me to post the recipe of jowar ki roti and i told her, i tried it few times but it is not coming, but will try sometime . I remember one of my friend do this very often and now she is living in australia. I called her and asked the recipe and she patiently explained each and every step and gave me the tips to make perfect jowar ki roti. the same evening i tried the recipe and shared with the friend who asked me for this roti recipe. And after making it 2-3 times i made it very perfect and now a  days, i make it twice in a week. You can try Bajra roti and Ragi aloo paratha

  • Take a big lemon sized portion of the dough and dust generously with dry flour.

  • Slowly roll the roti, dust in dry flour as and when needed. Unlike normal chapathi, this needs more dusting. Roll this into a roti, not too thin or not too thick.
  • I just made it a perfect round with a help of a dabba lid.
  • Heat a tawa and place the rolled roti on the tawa. Wet your hands with water and spread your hands on the top side of the roti. This is to keep the rotis soft even after few hours of making.

  1. Do not add water more than the quantity given. 
  2. While lifting the roti from the rolling board, carefully do it. If needed do it with a ladle.
  3. I never tried phulkas with this, but you can make phulkas too.
  4. In any case if the dough is bit lose, add little flour to this and knead well.

  7. I tried your jowar roti today. They turned out awesome. The only things after I was kneading the flour it was sticky. I add more flour. Thus cooling means that it has to be cool completely or you can knead while luke warm.
