  1. This is great with atta. I have some jowar. I can soak it overnight and pour like pancakes right? With all the other ingredients. Will experiment on it. This roti looks great and tempting

    1. Hello Smitha,
      Jowar Pancake concept is new to me.. as we always use flour for this recipe. As you know jowar dough is unpliable so I'm not sure how it will turn out.. Jowar flour is easily available so better to try this recipe with jowar flour. This is my one of the most favorite breakfast food and infact last week i had prepared this tecipe by adding spicy pudina chutney and it turn out very very delicious..
