Prep time: 10 mins Cooking time: 5 mins


Ingredients


  • 1 cup Jowar flour (for 6-7 rotis)

  • 2 tablespoon coconut flour

  • 1 tablespoon Psyllium husk / isabgol

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon oil

  • 1/2 cup water

 

Instructions

Making Jowar roti


  1. Mix Jowar flour, coconut flour and psyllium husk in a bowl or a glass.

  2. Heat 1/2 cup water and add salt and oil to it. let it come to a boil.

  3. Once the water starts bubbling, pour the flour mix to the water and turn off the flame.

  4. Mix it with a spoon and transfer the hot mixture on to a clean surface where you can knead. (See the video below to check how to knead)

  5. Take a lemon sized ball and roll it with rolling pin but do not add too much pressure because the dough will be very soft and does not contain as much gluten as wheat or maida.

  6. If you want a perfectly round roti then take a large and round lid and cut the edges.

  7. Transfer it on to the tava and keep it on high flame.

  8. Flip over once it's slightly brown on one side.

  9. Serve with butter and engai or your favorite curry!


Note:

  • The actual jowar rotti is difficult to knead with a store bought flour. It takes lot of patience to knead and roll it without breakage.

  • This recipe is to make it an easier process and takes very little time.

  • It's also very healthy compared to maida or wheat.

  • Coconut flour adds the extra softness to the roti and psyllium husk acts like a binding agent.
