How to make Millet rotis

  1. Use warm water to knead the flour. Ensure that the kneaded flour is not thick.
  2. Take a lemon sized kneaded flour and roll it gently between your palms. Ensure that this ball is is soft and has no cracks on it.
  3. Dust a little flour on the rolling board. Place this ball on the board and gently press to make it flat.
  4. Use the tip of the fingers to make it more flat and at the same time ensure it is flattened from all the sides.
  5. Start tapping with your right hand and use your left hand to cover the perimeter. (This ensures that the perimeter has no broken edges.) Dust your fingers, palms, roti as needed. Tap till the desired thickness is achieved.
  6. Usually, the thinner the roti the better. One's expertise lies in how thin their jowar rotis are. However, one needs to be patient if aiming for thin rotis.
  7. Heat a tava. Gently place the rolled roti on the tava. Use a damp cloth and rub it gently on the roti. This ensures that the rotis do not burn.
  8. Usually these rotis do not take a long time to get roasted. Keep an eye on this and once it gets roasted on one side, gently turn it and roast the other side as well.
  9. Serve hot or cold as desired.
