Preparation time: 10 Mins
Cooking Time: 10 Mins
½ Jowar flour/ Millet flour plus extra to roll
½ tsp salt
1 tsp oil
Take a bowl and combine salt, oil and Jowar flour in it. Take little water at a time to knead into a soft dough.
Use pressure of your hands to work the dough for about 4 to 5 minutes. This will make dough smooth and help in getting soft rotis.
Simultaneously keep tawa or a flat griddle to heat. Divide the dough into 4 equal portions.
Work with one portion at a time. Dust your working surface with enough flour and roll the dough portion into 5 “ diameter circle.
(The flour is a bit tricky to work with. The circle might tear if the dough is not soft enough. Sprinkle some water and knead the dough properly to get a perfect circle)
Gently transfer the rolled dough onto the tawa. Cook each side for about a minute. Once done, use a pair of tongs to gently hold the Bhakhar and roast the Bhakhar (both sides) directly over heat.
