METHOD

To roti Make a dough
  • Put all the wet ingredients and the spices into a bowl and mix it with your hands
  • Add 2 cups of the Bajra atta
  • Add a 1/4 cup of hot water and mix with a spoon so you don’t scald your hands
  • Work those biceps
  • You may need to add more flour so it is not too runny. It shouldn’t be too dry either…I like it spreadable.
 
To make roti
  • Heat The tava
  • Greece it lightly  with ghee 
  • On damp tea towel or pona 
  • Place the ball of Jewar flatten into the desired thickness
  • Throw the roti downwards on to the tava with a tea towel on top
  • Leave for few seconds then remove the cloth 
  • After a few seconds sprinkle little water to keep it soft
  • Turn over  cook other side  on the slow flame – whilst cooking make next roti
  • You can make 6 roties out of this mixture
  • Slightly oil it with ghee or coconut oil as they both help to absorb nutrients
 
To Eat
It’s a very filling meal that can be eaten for breakfast lunch or dinner
  • With Yogurt, achar, sabji
