Jwarichi Bhakri (Jowar ki Roti / Sorghum Flatbread)
Sorghum flour – 1 and ½ cups (enough to make 3 big sized flatbreads)
Water as needed. Sift Sorghum (jowar) flour. Take out some flour to use later for dusting. Start kneading the dough by adding little water at a time. As the flour is very finely grounded, regular tap water is used for kneading, otherwise pour hot water and mix it with a spoon and then knead it to form soft dough.
Take small portion of dough and sprinkle little water. Knead again nicely to form soft dough. Make a big sized ball and flatten it little bit using your palms. Dust the surface with some sifted sorghum flour and start patting to form a circle.Keep the thickness as per your liking. The roti shown here is pretty thin. Place bhakri on a preheated tawa / griddle and spread water all over it.
Once the water starts to evaporate, flip it and cook from other side. Cook for a minute or two until it gets some brown dots and cooks completely. Now put it directly on a gas flame and allow it to puff. Bhakri is ready.
Serve Chicken Rassa with deliciously hot Khuska rice and Jowar Bhakri 🙂 🙂
