JUAR JO DHODHO ( Sindhi Style Jowar Ki Roti )

This is a tradional jowar roti preparation in Sindhi Cuisine. It is made in two ways - one is with onion, coriander and green chillies which is usually eaten for breakfast with chutney, pickle and curd. As a kid I used to relish this with jam.. The other is the plain one usually served with sabzis, dals or meat dishes. This roti is usually made by flattening the dough with hands and spreading it evenly. But if you find it difficult you can roll it between plastic sheets.

Jowar ka atta ... 2 cups
Wheat flour .... 2-3 tbsps
Onions ....... 1/2 cup (chopped finely)
Green chillies ... 1-2  ( chopped finely )
Coriander leaves ... handful
Salt .............. to taste
Warm water ..... for kneading
Oil / desi ghee

1. Mix all the ingredients together.
2. Add 1 tbsp of desi ghee or oil.
3. Knead with warm water and set aside.
4. Sprinkle a little flour on the rolling pin and take a big chunk of the dough.
5. Spread it by patting or roll it carefully.
6. Roast it on a griddle / tawa spooning a little ghee or oil until done.
Serve hot with curd , chutney or pickle.


  1. I am glad you shared this post. My hubby has to be on a special diet and one of the things we have to reduce usage of is wheat flour. Your juar roti recipe is going to be very useful to me. Thank you for sharing it.
