  • 3 cups jowar flour sorghum flour
  • salt as per taste
  • 1 glass of warm water


  • Firstly, boil water until it gets warm and put it aside.
  • In a flat base bowl add jowar atta / jowar flour.
  • Add salt according to your taste and mix well.
  • Carefully add some warm water into the flour (Use a ladle if the water is too hot).
  • Start kneading the dough and keep adding water to knead until a thick dough is formed.
  • Do not add excess water as the dough may not be formed perfectly.
  • Take a small portion of the dough, make a round ball of the dough.
  • You can either use a rolling board or you can use the kitchen platform to roll out the roti.
  • Dust some jowar flour on the surface of the area where the roti is to be rolled out.
  • Place the round ball on the dusted area and start patting the ball.
  • Pat the ball and keep pressing it until a round circular jowar roti is obtained.
  • Usually the roti is patted or beaten with the palm of your hand and pressed to get a circular roti.
  • Heat the tawa well.
  • Lift the roti very carefully and place it on the tawa such that the roti with the atta side should come on the top.
  • Take a muslin cloth dipped in water and move the muslin cloth all over the top of the roti to apply some water all over the roti.
  • When the water evaporates, flip the roti.
  • Cook the other side for few minutes.
  • Flip the roti again and press it so that the roti gets cooked well on all sides.
  • The roti could also puff up if lucky enough.
  • Flip the roti and cook all the sides until they are roasted well.
  • Take it out on plate.
  • Serve hot with dal or any vegetable curry.


1. Always use warm water to make jowar roti as the roti may not be formed and may tend to break if cold water is used.
2. Allow the water to come down to room temperature if the water is too hot.
3. Always make sure to make jowar roti with fresh atta/flour as the jowar roti breaks if the atta used is too old.
