Ingredients to make Jowar roti

  • sorghum/jowar flour 450 gms
  • butter 30 gms
  • boiling water 1.5 cups
  • salt to taste

How to make Jowar roti

  1. Sieve the flour (so that it isn't lumpy). Add salt and mix well. Add boiling water over the dough and mix well and prepare a stiff dough. Make sure you don't burn your hands.
  2. Separate doughs into small balls to make separate chapatis.
  3. Shape the Chapati in a thick circular shape (Should be 1cm thick)
  4. Heat oil in a pan . Place the roti on the pan. As it gets dried, use a muslin cloth and sprinkle some water over it (wet the cloth and squeeze it over the roti). Cook both the sides over a low flame.
  5. Smear Ghee or Butter over the roti and serve with your favorite pickle or side-dish.

My Tip:

Boiling water is added into the dough as the jowar dough is gluten-free. It helps in moisturizing the jowar which is otherwise very dry due to absence of gluten
