Jola mattu Raagi Rotti.

Ragi/Finger Millet and Jola /Sorghum are from millet grains. Milelts are healthy grains and is good for our health. They are gluten free . I have used Ragi and Jola flours to prepare Rotti.


Rotti is a flat bread done on the flat tava. I have used  Finger millet, Millet/Sorghum/ Jovar and Rice flours.
Let us see the other names of Jola/Millet/Sorghum/Jovar in other languages.
Millet/Sorghum/Jovar is known as Thenai - Panjabi, Juar -Bengali, /Gujarati and Hindi. Kannada it is known as Jola, Cholam - Tamil and Malayalam, Jwari in Marati. In Oriya it is known as Janha and Jonnalu in Telugu.
 Let us see the recipe now :
Ragi - Jola Rotti is good to have for breakfast, at snack time and even dinner.

11. Wet your hand and spread the rotti evenly with your palm. \
12. Add a teaspoon of oil on the top and cover the rotti. ( Let the fire be very low while spreading the dough).
