Jowar bajr garlic roti is easy to make. We have made it by combining both the millet flours, garlic paste and sesame seeds. Garlic will gives a unique flavor to the roti, as both the flours are bland. It also has heart protecting benefits. Being a good source of fibre, it is a wise choice for diabetics.
