Jowar Roti / Cholam Roti / Sorghum Roti

Jowar Roti is a healthy and nutritious roti. You can serve this with any choice of side dish. I served it with tomato onion veg!! This is a great recipe to include millets in your diet as it is easy to do and also very tasty. This is my third choice for this week’s BM – Millets.

Jowar Flour - 1 1/2 cups
Hot Water - 3/4 cup
Salt - A pinch
Omam / Ajwain - A pinch
Oil - 1 tea spoon + 1/2 tea spoon per roti


Mix together jowar flour, salt and omam well.
Add hot water and mix it with a spoon first and then use your hand to make it to a soft dough
Add a tea spoon of oil and coat it well and keep it aside covered for 15 minutes
Use a rolling pin to roll it to a small disc (5 - 6 inches) and cook it on the tawa
When one side is cooked, flip it and apply 1/4 tea spoon oil and flip.
Add 1/4 tea spoon oil to the other cooked side also
Once both the sides have golden brown spots and are well cooked, remove from heat
Keep it in a hot case covered until you finish the remaining dough and also until it is served!!
