Rustic Indian flatbread, made from sorghum or Jowar flour
Recipe type: Indian Flatbread
Serves: 1
  • Jowar flour (one large cup for each dodo)
  • Chopped onion, a spoonful for each
  • Chopped Green chillies, as per taste
  • Chopped Coriander leaves 1 spoon for each
  • Chopped fresh green garlic, use both.... the while bulb part as well as the green leaves
  • Salt
  • Oil 2 tsp for each dodo
  • Water to knead the flour
  1. Mix all the ingredients except water
  2. Now add water little by little, mixing it properly and knead it, till you get a soft manageable dough.Smooth-en it properly
  3. Now take a handful of this dough and pat it gently on your palms (you can grease or wet your palms before doing so, to avoid sticky mess)
  4. Then carefully place  it on  greased, hot griddle and quickly keep patting it and rotating it simultaneously, till it reach the thickness of paratha.
  5. Now this could be really tough for novices, Just try it this way…..Take a clean plastic sheet (or cut open a poly bag or ziplock pouch), sprinkle some dry flour on that and start patting the dough on that till it  achieves required thickness.Then carefully transfer it on griddle, let it cook for few seconds and slide it on the inverted flat plate, then transfer it back on griddle ( this is to help flip) and cook on other side.
  6. Cook it on medium flame on both sides.Apply  some oil  after flipping sides,so as to make it crisp
  7. Enjoy it hot (it only taste good when hot) with any veggie / dal / buttermilk or as shown in the pic with yogurt
