Like Jowar aur Pudina Ki Roti, then see our collection of Indian rotis and roti recipes using jowar flour.
To make Jowar aur Pudina ki Roti, add 1 cup of jowar flour into a deep bowl. Jowar flour is a very nourishing flour which adds on protein, fiber and iron to your diet.
Add the mint leaves to it. Always buy fresh and dark green mint leaves and chop them just before using, else they tend to turn black. Remember to wash them thoroughly before using.
Add the onions to it. They give the necessary crunch to these roti. You can also add some grated carrot or grated cabbage at this stage.
Add the green chillies. These perk up the flavour of bland jowar flour. Since they are served with low fat curd which is also bland, if you like your meals a little spicy add some extra green chillies.
Add the oil (preferably peanut oil). This lends softness to the rotis.
Add salt as per your taste.
Mix well. Use your hands for mixing rather than a spoon as this helps in uniform mixing. Keep aside.
Boil ½ cup of water in a saucepan.
Carefully pour the hot water in the bowl of jowar flour mixture. Hot water is added to provide softness to the rotis.
Initially mix the mixture and water with a spoon so that you do not burn your hands. Wait for about a minute.
Once the heat of the dough is easy to handle, knead the dough with your hands.
Continue kneading to make a soft dough. If the dough seems to be sticky, add more jowar flour and if the dough seems to be a little stiff, then add some more hot water.
Make 4 even balls out of the dough.
Sprinkle some good amount of dry jowar flour on the rolling board and flatten a dough ball on it.
Roll it into 150 mm. (6") diameter circle using a rolling pin. Use more jowar flour as required to ease the process of rolling.
Once the Jowar aur Pudina ki Roti is rolled, place it on a hot non-stick tava.
Cook Jowar aur Pudina ki Roti on a medium flame using ¼ tsp of little oil (preferably peanut oil) on each side of the roti.
Cook till the brown spots appear on both the sides of the Jowar aur Pudina ki Roti.
Serve Jowar aur Pudina ki Roti immediately with low-fat curd.
