Jolada rotti/ Jowar Ki rotti / Sorghum Flatbread

Jaloda rotti/ Jola rotti / jonna rotte is a flatbread from North Karnataka. It is an unleavened Indian flatbread made from Jowar/Sorghum flour.

In A to Z Indian flatbreads, my theme for mega marathon, today’s letter i.e. On 10th day is ‘J’. When I searched for flatbreads with letter F, I could find Jowar ki roti, Jola rotti, Jolada rotti, Jowar Bhakri etc. On further looking, came to know that these are the same only the name is different.

I had decided to make jolada rotti, but don’t know what happened, I somehow changed it last moment and decided to make Jharkhand special Thekua. My whole thekua post was ready, then all of a sudden a doubt erupted into my mind whether Thekua could be considered a flatbread?? I immediately contacted Valli, the brain behind blogging marathon. She told me that it doesn’t come under flatbreads, but biscuits. So my other option that I had decided initially, was jolada rotti.

It was already 3 O’ clock, so I jokingly asked Valli that we all already have finished our lunch, what would I do with these rottis then. She asked me to make one only and eat it like biscuit with evening tea.

Everywhere it was mentioned that it is difficult to make this rotti, so I was a bit worried if my rotti will come out well or not. Since I have lot of practice of making maki ki roti, that helped me in making these rottis. I could make paper thin rottis by slapping dough on a greased plastic sheet.

Kehte hain dane dane pe likha hai khane wale ka naam. While I was making rottis, all of a sudden my husband came for lunch. I asked him to wait for a while till I take some pics.

I didn’t have any South Indian side dish to serve with these rottis, so served with Wadi wali ghiya, that I had already made for lunch and Boondi raita. My husband took three rottis and I was left with two rottis. This reminded me Valli’s suggestion of eating it like a biscuit. I immediately made curry leaves chutney, spread it on that roti. Believe me it tasted awesome with tea. Thank you Valli for the suggestion.

  1. That’s so quick and very nicely done Ritu. Fantastic ramp up believe me. And yes the basic recipe of this roti is how you have made it. I have a video of how its made in Andhra that my MIL made, that needs a different practice altogether. However, glad your Makki ki roti patting came to help..:)

  2. Jowar roti with chutney spread looks out of the world and tempting me to the core ! And that wadi wala geehya sounds awesome too . Kudos on cooking , clicking and uploading without any prep ! Lovely post Ritu .

  3. I use the puri press between sheets of plastic to make these rotis. I have a bag of jowar flour which I can use up for these rotis. Spreading chutney is a great idea.

  4. I remember me doing the same thing during early mega BM. I used to cook and blog on the same day. It surely made life interesting. You were really lucky that day that your hubby came for lunch. The roti with curry leaves chutney as the spread sounds fantastic Ritu..

  5. That seemed like quite an adventure Ritu! But I know how we all operate during mega BMs with so many things to do! The jollada roti has turned out so fabulous! Love the chutney spread on top ….seems like a perfect snack with tea!

  6. The chutney wali roti had me drooling! How we keep on changing our recipes at the last minute. Jowar rotis looks so soft and you’ve made them thin. I’ve also paired a South Indian flatbread with a north indian or Gujarati curry…as long as the family loves it.

  7. wow jowar roti really taste great and with this chutney roti really looks inviting and mouthwatering while I am typing. Ritu make a post how to make these rotis. making this way is difficult for me as of now. but will practice it.
