mooli jowar roti recipe | healthy radish jowar chapati | Indian style jowar mooli bhakri | sorghum radish paratha is a nourishing and filling Indian bread. Learn how to make Indian style jowar mooli bhakri.
To make mooli jowar roti, combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl and knead into a soft dough, using enough hot water. Divide the dough into 6 equal portions and roll out each portion between two sheets of greased plastic into a circle of 100 mm (4") diameter. You will need 1/4 tsp oil to grease each plastic sheet. Once 3 rotis are rolled, grease both the sheets again. Heat non-stick tava (griddle) and cook each roti using 1/4 tsp of oil, till it turns golden brown in colour from both sides. Serve hot with fresh curds.
Jowar has a rustic and homely flavour, which you will start preferring over even wheat flour once you develop a taste for it. Here, we have reinforced the jowar flour with grated mooli in the form of Indian style jowar mooli bhakri, which gives a splendid flavour and aroma upon cooking.
Not only that, the moisture from the mooli keeps the sorghum radish paratha quite soft too, unlike plain jowar rotis, which tend to be a bit tough while rolling at times. Since this roti is perked up with ginger-garlic paste and other spice powders, it is enough to just serve it with a cup of curds or raita.
Weight-watchers, heart patients and diabetics can also enjoy this healthy radish jowar chapati with slight modification. The fibre in it is beneficial for all of them. However, they need to reduce the amount of oil used in the dough to 1 tsp to make it more nourishing. Enjoy these rotis for Breakfast, lunch or dinner. At 99 calories, we suggest 2 rotis as a serving size.
Tips for mooli jowar roti. 1. Ensure to make a soft dough so rolling becomes easier. Also if the dough is hard, the rotis tend to become hard too. 2.

To make mooli jowar roti recipe | healthy radish jowar chapati | Indian style jowar mooli bhakri | sorghum radish paratha, in a deep bowl put one cup of jowar flour. Jowar flour is a complex carb and will be absorbed slowly in the blood stream and not cause a spike in insulin. Jowar and all Millets are rich in Potassium. Potassium is critical for those with High Blood Pressure as it lessens the impact of sodium. Hence a good safe food for diabetics but to be had in restricted quantity and safe for those who want to live and eat healthy. Being high in Fibre, Jowar reduces bad cholesterol (LDL) and increases the effects of good cholesterol (HDL). See 17 benefits of jowar and why you should have it.
Add 1/2 cup grated white radish. Radish has many heart protective nutrients like Vitamin C, folic acid, calcium, potassium and flavonoids. They are an amazing source of fibre which helps in lowering cholesterol levels. The vitamin C in radishes is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory which can help arthritis patients.

Add 1 teaspon ginger garlic (adrak-lehsun) paste.
Add 1 teaspoon chilli poweder.
Add salt to taste.
Add 1 tablespoon oil. If you are a diabetic, a heart patient or aiming weight loss, you can use 1 tsp of oil in the dough.
Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl.
Add enough hot water to make a soft dough.
Knead into a soft dough.
Divide the dough of healthy radish jowar chapati into 6 equal portions.
Rolling of the jowar flour is always difficult. We show you how to roll jowar flour. We will roll it on a plastic sheet. So place the plastic sheet on a rolling board.
Using a brush, grease the plastic sheet with 1/4 tsp of oil. This makes rolling a jowar roti easy. You need to brush the plastic sheet each time you feel the roti is sticking to the sheet while rolling. This is approximately after 3rd to 4th roti.
Take a portion of the dough and place it on the plastic sheet.
Take another plastic sheet and grease it with 1/4 tsp of oil.
Place the second greased plastic sheet and place over the dough. The greased side of the plastic sheet must be placed over the dough.
Start rolling with a rolling pin (belan) lightly. Don't put too much pressure else the roti will tear.
Keep rotating the plastic to make a circular dough while rolling. Since we have greased the plastic sheets, there is no need for atta (jowar flour) for rolling the dough.
Roll to a diameter of 4 inches. Don't make the roti larger as it will tear while rolling.
Remove the plastic sheet after you finish rolling.
Place the rolled Indian style jowar mooli bhakri on the tava.
Cook on one side. Use a flat laddle and press downwards so the roti gets cooked well.
Flip and cook the other side of the roti.
Add some oil (approximately 1/4 tsp) on top of the sorghum radish paratha.
Flip and cook the other side. NOTE that we have used jowar flour and hence the roti will take a little longer to cook.
Serve mooli jowar roti immediately with a bowl curd. You can make your choice between full fat curd and low fat curd.
