Golden crisp Masala Jowar Roti is so easy to make and serves a delectable and very healthy dish. With all the goodness of Jowar/Sorghum millet and lots of veggies, this is is a great choice for a sumptuous breakfast/lunch or dinner.
In this post, I share recipe with many tips to make crispy Masala Jowar Roti. This can be put together in 15-20 Minutes. This is similar to Akki Rotti made with Jowar Flour. The trick here is in ingredients and making the dough right.
1 Cup Jowar flour
1 Cup or ¼ of a Cabbage finely chopped or grated
1 Cup or 1 Medium Carrot grated
1 Cup or 1 Medium Onion finely chopped
½ Cup Dill Leaves finely chopped
¼ Cup Coriander Leaves finely chopped
1 Tsp Cumin/Jeera
1 Tsp Salt
¼ Cup water
Oil for cooking as needed
Tips for Veggies
Other veggies that can be added: grated Cucumber, Bottle-gourd or Methi leaves.
Cabbage give crispness and a great texture. So, add a lot of cabbage.
If Dill leaves are not available, it can be substituted for Coriander or Methi leaves.
Finely chopped green chillies can be added for spice.
Finely chop the onion, dill and coriander leaves.
Grate the cabbage and carrot.
Making the Dough
Take a mixing bowl and add the cabbage, carrot, onion, dill leaves and coriander leaves.
Add cumin seeds and salt. Mix it all well.
To this, add the Jowar flour little by little and mix with the veggies. The water in the veggies will help form the dough.
If the dough is dry, then add 1/4 cup of water and mix. Please check the video for the consistency.
Tips for the dough
Add Jowar flour to veggies and not the other way around.
One cup of Jowar flour for every 3.5 to 4 cups of veggies.
Add water as needed if dry.
Making the Roti
Spread 1/4 tsp oil over a cold tawa.
Take a handful of dough, pat and spread on tawa into a circle of like-able size.
Wet your hands in water to help spread the dough.
Do not spread it too thin to prevent breaking.
Make a hole in the middle to add oil
Place the tawa on a medium flame
Add 1/2 tsp oil around and in the middle.
Cover and cook for about a minute or until golden brown.
Flip and cook for about 30 seconds.
Cripy Masala Jowar Roti is ready! Enjoy with coconut chutney.
Take two tawas and alternate
Running tawa under cold water helps cool it faster
Pat on parchment paper or banana leaf and transfer to tawa.
