Flours of millets like jowar add a rustic touch to bhakris. The homely aroma that emanates from the kitchen when you cook a Jowar Bhakri itself will give you a very content and comforting feel.

Here we have combined jowar flour with a little whole wheat flour to make the rotis easier to roll and to improve their texture. Just remember to serve them immediately on cooking.

Serve with Methi Pitla or Cauliflower Greens Pitla , an ideal match for Jowar Bhakri. You can also serve Green Chilli Thecha or Red Chilli Thecha and some onions as an accopmpaniment.
