I’ve missed fluffy, soft roti’s the most. I was overjoyed when I connected with Purnima Arora, India who found the perfect trick to making ‘gluten free roti’s.’
With her permission, I’m sharing her recipe here for all to try & enjoy.
Gluten Free Roti :
1 cup Jowar flour (millet flour)
1.5 cups of water
Salt, as per taste.
Step 1. Heat water in a heavy bottom sauce pan, add salt (as per taste). When the water begins to boil, add the jowar flour to the mix. Using a ladle stir vigorously avoiding lumps. Keep stirring until the water has been absorbed by the flour. (takes about 3-4 minutes).
Step 2. While the mixture is still warm, roll into balls for roti preparation.
Step 3.Apply a little dry jowar flour and using a rolling pin flatten it into the desired shape of the roti.
Step 4. Heat the flat pan (tava) on which you make roti’s. Place the flattened roti’s on it and heat it as you would any normal roti. Cook evenly on both sides.
Step 5. You can also place it on the hot flames and see it fluff up.
PS: Please make sure there is no source of cross-contamination by cleaning the tava and the general cooking area, especially the stove if you’re going to use the hot flames to fluff the rotis.
It’s funny because it’s so true.
