Jolada rotti is an unleavened Indian bread made out of jowar (sorghum), originating from North Karnataka. It is coarser than a roti. It can be either soft or hard in texture, compared to a khakhra or cracker with respect to hardness. The name literally translates into sorghum bread, jolada rotti is also called as jwarichi Bhakri in neighboring Maharashtra.
Jolada rotti is part of the staple diet of most of the districts of North Karnataka, where it is eaten with pulse curries such as jhunka, enne gai or with assorted chutneys.
To knead the dough of gluten free flour such as jowar, bajra, rice, we use warm water. Once dough is ready, try to cook roti immediately or you can knead the dough into small portion. Otherwise dough will release the moisture and would tough to handle that.

Rolling jowar bhakri is seriously an art and you have got them with prefect shapes. Kudos to you Preeti. Jolada roti with some chilly pickle will definitely please my tastebuds.
Perfectly made, Preeti. Love jowar roti in any form.
You have made it perfect Preeti. Rolling and cooking gluten free flours is so tough but you have mastered the art. The nutritious rotis look so yum…
Those rotis looks awesome Preeti! Like Priya says, rolling out jowar rotis is definitely an art and you seem to be an expert in it! Kudos to you
Even I made Jolada roti Preeti. Your rotis are looking whiter as compared to mine. I even asked Valli that my rotis are on creamier side then she told that it could be due to difference in flour. Anyway, the rotis look good
Hi Ritu.. I purchase from small local flour shop, plus I dust my chapati with wheat flour, there are big difference between local shop flour texture and packet flour.
It is interesting to see the whole grains being used more and more and I want to start making use of them more often in our every day diet. The Jowar bhakri looks amazing and love the texture.
Perfectly make jowar roti as rolling it is very difficult. To roll it more easily I sometimes add some boiled and mashed potato.
I too made the same one Preeti but with a few veggies added to the dough.You have rolled them out perfectly!
You have got a perfectly rolled out rotis. Great job there! These rotis taste awesome even when cold.
