Jowar Mogri ki Roti

Jowar Mogri ki Roti is an Indian flatbread made with Sorghum flour as the star ingredient . Radish greens and radish pods give it a wonderful flavor .

This bread was inspired from a Gujrati tv show . Since the Flatbreads and More theme was decided quite early I could lay my hands on both radish greens and these pods .These pods are available only in winters for a short period .

These purple pods have a exotic appearance and a bite into these gives a very familiar flavour , yes , it’s the flavour of radish !
It is interesting to notice that once these Mogri pods are boiled or crushed they charge their color from purple to green . We also get a green variety of these pods which look similar to cluster beans .

Anyway back to the Jowar Mogri ki Roti, I made a paste with the radish greens , fresh green garlic , mogri and green chillies . I added this paste to the Jowar flour and used the paste to bind the flour . I did not use any water as the paste was enough , but in case you feel the dough is dry , sprinkle water to get the right consistency . A little methi masala and salt add on to the flavours.

The Jowar Mogri Rotis can rolled on plastic sheets , but I patted them with hands with the help of some dry flour . I roasted them on griddle and then on the gas flame . Ideally they should be roasted over charcoal .

Jowar Mogri ki Roti is a delicious , gluten free roti with the flavours of radish , enjoy eating it as it is or with some methia masala, curd or pickle .

  1. Wow, adding radish to jowar roti is super interesting Vaishali. Dunno why am scared to roll jowar roti and never succeeded in rolling them this much prefect. Jowar mogri ki rotis looks absolutely amazing and prefect in shapes.

  2. After reading mogri, I went and searched for images. We also get this here, but they are green in colour and I have never used it incooking. I will bookmark this recipe and will try when I can get them. Adding raddish greens is a wonderful idea. The rotis look so good. I need to learn the art of rolling out gf dough.

  3. Wow! Radish greens in a jowar roti sounds fabulous! I have had tragic failures with jowar roti and so I usually stay away from them. But your roti is so tempting….I should give it another shot really!

  4. An interesting way to use mogri. We used to get them before but now as more and more farms are managed by the locals rather than the Indians some of these uniques vegetables are disappearing from the market here. Adding a paste of the radish greens and mogri is a brilliant way to make jowar roti taste different. Excellent recipe.

  5. jowar flour kneaded with radish taste superb. In winters when we buy radish I keep adding them in flour. really what a taste. I like this masala with the roti. Will look out for the recipe. You pin image is so cute…

  6. I use radish and radish greens, but never ever thought of using mogri in rotis…..Excellent idea I must say. We get green mogri almost at the end of winters, but never knew that purple mogri is also there

  7. I have read about Mogri pods only after blogging and don’t know if we get it here, now that Gayathri says we get it here, I must search for it. Using it in a roti is an excellent way to make the rotis healthy Vaishali and the whole platter looks great!

  8. I too made a jowar roti but the very basic version.I have never seen radish pods here but will keep an eye out for it in future. All this while I used to discard radish greens! Now I know where to use it.Btw, can it be added to the regular wheat flour dough?
