Jowar poori recipe, Sorghum poori, Cholam poori

Jowar poori/ Jolada poori/ Cholam poori is a soft, puffy and delish Indian bread that is prepared with gluten free jowar/ sorghum/ cholam millet flour and wheat flour. Yes I did add little quantity of wheat flour/ atta for easy binding and also to make the kneading and rolling part easy as I was unsure about the output using just Jowar flour. As we all know jowar/ cholam is rich in iron, fiber, protein, controls blood sugar levels and packed with vitamins, minerals and micronutrients, so adding this millet in any form to our diet can do lot of goodness to our health. Jowar/ Cholam as a whole millet or flour can be used to make many dishes like idli, upma, cookies, puttu, dosa, roti/ bhakri and many more.

Jowar poori/ Sorghum poori just like any other poori tastes great with any subzi, potato masala, chana masala etc . Do try this yummy poori at home and let me know your feedback. So let’s get to the making!

  4. 4. Salt – to taste
  5. 5. Oil – for deep frying
Note
  1. * 1 cup = 235 ml
Instructions
  1. In a wide bowl add jowar flour, wheat flour and salt. Mix well. Now to this flour mixture add hot water gradually. Use a spatula/ spoon to knead the dough as it will be very hot to hand with hand. Keep kneading it. Allow the dough to rest for 2- 3 minutes so that it will get warm enough to be handled with hand. When the dough is warm enough start kneading the dough little tight just like regular poori dough. The dough will be easily bind due to the addition of wheat flour/ atta. Leave the dough aside for 10 minutes.
  2. After 10 minutes the dough might be little soft just add little jowar/ wheat flour and knead it once. Divide the dough into small portions equally just like we do for regular poori.
  3. Heat oil in a frying pan. Now sprinkle some jowar flour in the rolling space. Place the ball on the flour and flatten it using rolling pin gently and you will notice few cracks in the sides which is normal. Flatten the dough to small circle.
  4. Now slide the flattened dough in preheated oil. Once it puffs up flip and cook. When done remove it from oil using slotted spoon and transfer it yo plate with paper towel. Serve it hot with gravy of your choice. Repeat the process till all the dough is over.
Notes
  1. 1. Using only hot water will help the flour bind while kneading the dough.
