About This Recipe

This Masala Jowar Roti (Masala Jolada Roti) is a spiced version of traditional jowar roti. Apart from jowar and whole wheat flour, it has onion, green chillies, carrots and a few more simple ingredients.

It is delicious, nutritious and is very beneficial to include in your summer meals. Serve it for your everyday meals with dal, kadhi or sabzi of your choice or just have it as a snack with your evening tea.

Ingredients

You will need just a few basic ingredients to make masala jowar roti – jowar flour, whole wheat flour, onion, veggies, green chillies, fresh coriander, sesame seeds, roasted cumin powder, salt and oil.

You will easily find jowar or sorghum flour in your grocery stores. You can also make it by grinding white millet or jowar at home.

I have used cucumber and carrot, but you can add in more veggies such as grated beetroot, bell peppers, spinach etc to make it more wholesome. In winters, you can also add in fresh methi or fenugreek leaves in the roti.

Adjust the amount of green chillies depending on how spicy you want the roti to be.

Serving Suggestions

This masala jolada roti tastes great with almost everything. Be it a dal, kadhi, curry or a simple stir fry or sabzi. It also tastes great with a bowl of curd or raita.

You can also have it as a snack with your evening cup of tea or coffee.

Storing Suggestions

I would suggest you to serve it right out of the griddle – hot & crisp. Leftovers can be stored in a foil or an airtight container for about a day. Reheat it on a griddle or microwave before serving.

    I added grated radishes, toasted black mustard seeds and ginger to this recipe. I used my Victoria brand tortilla press to make the perfect rotis. We don’t cook with oil in our family so I dropped out that segment of the recipe. They were absolutely toasty with beautiful caramel brown spots all over them. Delicious!

  2. Is the whole wheat flour to bind the dough together? If so can it be substituted with potato? Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.
