This preserves its vitamin C content which helps to build our immunity and bring that sparkle to the skin. The antioxidants vitamin Avitamin C and the quercetin present in coriander works towards strengthening our immune system. Coriander is a fairly good source of iron and folate – the 2 nutrient which help in the production and maintenance of red blood cells in our blood.

Tarla Dalal    Hi Swatee, Jowar dough is a little difficult to roll. If you find it difficult to roll, roll it between two parchment papers.

Jowar and methi is a very nutritious combination. However, since jowar lacks gluten it is not possible to roll out these rotis with a rolling pin. It has to be done in the traditional way by tapping the dough ball with the fingers. This needs to be changed in the recipe instructions.

Tarla Dalal    Hi Deepali, It is difficult to roll but you can roll easily if you have good practice with these type of flours. If not then as you said the traditional way can also be done.
