Jowar is one of the top 5 cereals in the world and is also one of the super foods with many health benefits. We have a very easy recipe using jowar that is Jowar roti also known as "Sorghum roti"

We have made this healhy jowar roti with jowar flour and little salt to taste. The only trick is kneading of the dough.

Remove it in a plate and smear with ghee.

Jowar roti is super rich in fibre, is gluten free, good for diabetics, high in magnesium and iron also lowers blood pressure and cholesterol. We have used hot water for kneading the dough as it helps in getting the roti soft and even when not served for hours, it doesn't become hard or chewy. But you also need to make sure that you roll out the roti immediately after kneading the dough as if you would keep the dough for a long time, it will loose its moisture and would become splintery which would make rolling difficult. My grandmother would cook it on an earthen clay oven on a chulha which would give a smoky flavor to the roti. Whenever we cook jowar roti at home, i make any Maharashtrian sabzi to eat along.
