On a lazy weekend morning, I was not in a mood to make breakfast. But we were all hungry and I was craving for something very filling which would give me enough time to laze around and cook something for a late lunch. And traditionally Jonna Rotte or Jowar ki roti is eaten by farmers who do a lot of physical work and Jonna rotte is supposed to sustain the farmers for a good 4-5 hrs. It is supposedly not so easily digestible and therefore requires a little activity for it to get digested. 


This same kind of Masala Roti is usually made with rice flour. Jowar is high in protein, fiber and other nutrients. It can form part of a gluten-free diet.



Ingredients - 

Jowar Flour / Jonna Pindi 2 cups
Onion (Finely Chopped) 1 cup
Carrot (Grated) 1 cup
Garam Masala 1/2 tsp
Mirchi Powder 1/2 tsp
Hot Water 1 cup
Oil (Veg oil or Olive oil) 2 Tbsp
Salt as per taste

Method Of Preparation - 

In a mixing bowl, add the jowar flour, grated carrots, finely chopped onions, salt, mirchi powder, garam masala and 1 Tbsp of oil.


Add hot water to the flour mix and knead to a soft dough (chapati dough consistency).


Divide the dough into equal parts and make rotis with each part. I did this by greasing a plastic sheet and pressing the dough with my finger tips forming a 3-4 inch circular roti. 


On a hot griddle/tawa spray some oil and gently place the roti and spray oil as per need. If the roti breaks, quickly press it back into place to form a neat circle.


Cook on both the sides until they are golden brown and store them in a covered box. (Like a chapati box)


Serve the rotis warm with sliced onions (Optional) and Palak Dal. 

Makes about 12 rotis
Preparation Time 45 min
