Jolada Rotti | Jowar Roti | Jowar Bhakri recipe– with step by step photo, detailed description and the video. Jolada rotti is an healthy and wonderful Indian flat bread recipe with essential nutrients. Jowar roti is an unleavened Indian bread made out of Jowar (or Sorghum) originating from North Karnataka. It can either be made soft or hard in texture. The name Jolada rotti or Jowar roti is also famously known as Jowar Bhakri.
Jolada rotti is part of the meal of most of the districts of North Karnataka mostly accompanied with Ennegai (Brinjal Sabzi), Pulse curries, or dry chutney powders like Gurellu chutney powder, Peanut chutney powder, dry coconut chutney powder, etc.
Preparing this jolada rotti is very simple, but actual method from the North Karnataka style roti by beating with your palm takes good practice. Even by rolling it the way you prepare chapati also give the same taste rather than beating it by your palm. For preparing the dough, boiling water is must. And one more important thing is you have to knead well and there should not be any lumps in the dough.
I often prepare chapati or poori from wheat flour(godhi hittu) whenever me and my husband get bored of eating the rice sambar and variety rices(like Coconut rice, Lemon rice, Tomato rice, Puliyogare, Vangibath), but had never tried Jolada rotti because I always thought it has to be beaten in palm to prepare it. Some days back when I had visited my mom’s place. There I saw she was preparing the Jowar roti by rolling it like the way we prepare chapati.
