Sorghum Roti -- Jowar Thepla Recipe -- How to make Jowar Thepla

Jowar/Sorghum, Raagi/Finger Millet, Sujjalu/Pearl Millet, Korralu/Foxtail Millet etc.. all are belong to cereal group, popularly known as millets. They are all small-seeded grasses that are hard and grow well in dry zones. They are one of the oldest food grains known to people. They are highly nutritious and gluten free food and also non-acidic foods. They are soothing and easy to digest foods. They release lesser glucose into the blood so they are diabetic friendly foods. 
Jowar thepla is a kind of thepla made with yellow jowar. A very simple and of course healthy dish which can be served as an evening snack. 

Ingredients:

Sorghum/Jowar - 1 cup
Onion - 1 
Green Chillies - 2 to 3
Ginger - 2" long
Salt - to taste
Red Chilli Powder - 1/4 tsp
Garam Masala - 1 tsp
Coriander Leaves - fist full
Oil - 2 tbsp

Procedure:

We get two varieties of jowar one white and the other is yellow. We can make roti with both of them. I used yellow jowar for making thepla. We can make this dish with white one also. I normally get the flour done at the flour mill instead of buying it from stores. But we can use store bought also. 
Chop onions, green chillies and ginger. 
Add salt, chopped onions, green chillies and ginger to the jowar flour. 
Add little warm water to make the dough.
Make the dough as much soft and stiff as we do it for chapati.
Need not rest the dough. 
Make the dough into equal portions. Using rolling pin roll each ball into 5 -6" circle. Use dry flour if required. 
Heat tawa, put one thepla on it and cook in the low flame. Add one spoon of oil or ghee to it. Press gently with the spatula. Cook till golden brown spots appear on one side. Flip it and cook the other side also. Press gently with spatula. 
Serve hot jowar thepla with tomato ketch up.
