  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and knead into a soft dough using enough warm water. Cover with a lid and keep aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Divide the dough into 6 equal portions and roll out each portion into a 125 mm. (5") diameter circle using a little jowar flour for rolling. You may feel this rolling is little difficult but with time and practice you will surely get it.
  3. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and cook each roti, using ¼ tsp of oil, till it turns golden brown in colour from both the sides.
  4. Serve immediately.

   Hi Swatee, Jowar dough is a little difficult to roll. If you find it difficult to roll, roll it between two parchment papers.

Jowar and methi is a very nutritious combination. However, since jowar lacks gluten it is not possible to roll out these rotis with a rolling pin. It has to be done in the traditional way by tapping the dough ball with the fingers. This needs to be changed in the recipe instructions.

   Hi Deepali, It is difficult to roll but you can roll easily if you have good practice with these type of flours. If not then as you said the traditional way can also be done.
