Masala Jolada Rotti

Print Friendly and PDF
Jowar is one of the most healthiest grains which we should include in our diet.Making Jolada rotti seems very difficult for many people and even I used to find it difficult during my earlier stages of cooking.But with some tips which I learnt from my mom,now I can make very decent jolada rotti even though I have not not mastered still in making it.I will try posting karnataka's the most famous Jolada rotti soon.The speciality of this masala jolada rotti is even a beginner to the kitchen can also make it very easily and enjoy the more tastier version of regular jolada rotti.When I posted Akki Rotti many of you liked and tried my version of akki rotti and thanked me for the tips I have shared there,if you want to expertize yourself in making these rotti's please go through the tips I mentioned here and I am sure you will definitely surprise others with the flaw less crispy and tastier rotti's.You can make this with only jowar flour and avoid using wheat flour,still it comes nice.But addition of little wheat flour in it even the beginners can prepare it without any difficulty.

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups Jowar/sorghum flour
1/4 cup wheat flour(handful and optional)
3/4 cup grated bottle gourd
1/2 cup finely chopped onions
2 tsp green chilli paste
1 tbsp white sesame seeds
1/4 cup chopped coriander
1 tsp jeera(optional)
salt to taste

Method:
  • Take a wide bowl and mix Jowar flour,wheat flour and salt.
  • Add grated bottle gourd,chopped onions,green chilli paste,coriander,jeera,sesame seeds and mix well until the mixture is completely moistened by the water from bottle gourd and onions.
  • Now add some warm(to medium heat) water if required and mix well until you get the dough similar to the akki roti dough and rest the dough for 10-15 mins.You can even use it immediate if required.
  • Take a handful of dough and make it into round balls of Orange size.
  • Smear the Rotti tawa(Non-stick/normal dosa pan) with little bit of oil all over the tawa and place the rotti dough in center and press it gently with hands and spread into a thin layer by rotating the pan and by immersing the hand in a bowl of water in between which helps in patting the dough evenly and smoothly on the tawa.Make it as thin as possible.do not bother if small gaps are there,that makes the rotti even crispier.
  • Pour little oil over it and cover it with a lid and place it on fire on medium flame.Let it cook for 2 mins.Keep an eye on it to check in b whether it is done or not.Once you see the red patches started forming increase the flame and cook it.Try to rotate the tawa inorder to get an evenly roasted rotti.No need to turn it on the other side.
Serve this right off from the flame and on to the plate with a dollop of fresh white butter and some Thokku(smashed pickle type generally made up of either mango or tomato) and masala dahi.
I served it with Lobia Curry.

Variations:
  • Grated Carrot/Bottle gourd/Cucumber/Beetroot/fresh coconut can be added to the above mixture according to our taste.
  • Greens like Mint/Coriander/Dill leaves/Spinach can also be added according to our taste.

We call this thalipeeth. For even simpler way it can be patted lightly on a polybag sheet, invert it and then press it on the pan, once completely pressed remove the sheet. This is good for the newbies and even when you are in a hurry as this enables patting on a hot tava too.
