Jowar Roti

Jowar is rich in carbohydrates and high calories. They are gluten free. Normally these are made with hand which are already posted in the blog long back, for the recipe click here
We can make them using a rolling pin also. I have learned it from my friend Geetha. I found it is the best and easy way to make jowar roti. 
It is the staple food for farmers in villages in the state of Telangana in India even now. They take them with some spicy curry, raw onion and green chilli. I served this roti with bathua saag
I do not use store bought flour for making rotis, instead get raw jowar and dry them under sun for one or two days. Take them to a near by flour mill and get fresh flour. 
Preparation Time: 10 mins

  1. Boil water in a thick bottomed vessel.

  3. When water boiling add jowar flour and stir it continuously. 
  4. Sometimes this may need more flour also, so keep the flour available.
