Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Indian
Servings: 4


  • 1 cup jowar atta
  • 1 onion
  • 1 green chilli
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • Salt as needed


  • First gather the ingredients needed. Take jowar atta, finely chopped onion and chilli, turmeric, red chilli and coriander powders, oil, salt, cumin seeds in a mixing bowl.
  • Mix well. Boil water briskly. Add little by little to the flour and mix with spatula.
  • Once warm, make a crack free dough. Divide into 4 equal sized balls.
  • Line the rolling surface with butter paper. Sprinkle dusting flour. Place a ball of dough and flatten the dough to hand size roti.
  • Sprinkle more flour over top and use rolling pin to spread to roti.
  • Be very gentle and slow or it will stick. Heat a tawa and drizzle with oil. Invert the butter paper and peel the paper to place the roti in tawa.
  • Cook for couple of minutes in medium flame. Drizzle over some oil.
  • Flip and cook until golden spots appear all over.



  • Make sure to boil water briskly and use it to make dough. Otherwise it will break while rolling and flipping.
  • Before flipping, let it cook, otherwise it will break as well.
  • You can use wheat flour too if you don't mind gluten, to make handling easier.
