Jowar roti or jowar bhakri are flat breads. Made with sorghum flour. These rotis are also called as jolada rotti in karnataka. Sorghum is a helhty millet which is good in minerals like calcium, potassiun, phoshorous and iron. Being rich in antioxidants, its good for the heart too and is friendly. Jowar is also an excellent gluten free flour. Jowar rotis have a nice soft texture and even on cooling do not become hard or chewy. In Maharastra served jowar rotis in a thali with pitla ( a thick but moist gram flour paste spiced dish) and green chilli thecha ( coarse green chilli and garlic chutney). Jowar bhakri can also be served with zunka ( a dry version of pitla). Usually when i make jowar roti, i also make a maharstrian based curry to go with it like batata rassa, vangi rassa, mixed sprouts curry, veg kolhapuri, or usal. I make these millet and gluten free rotis season wise. In summer i make jowar rotis and in Winters i make bajra roti. And when we fast during some days, I make rajgira paratha or kuttu ka paratha.
