  25. I tried this roti today as I am a big fan of grains ESP Jowar . I have made jowar rotis before but not this method. I wasn't surprised when I couldn't roll out the dough of balls into a lovely shaped roti but It is really amazing how u got the perfect looking roti so thin & evenly shaped. As we know there is not gluten in Jowar flour how did u manage to roll it out ..mine did spread out but I couldn't shape it well & also I had to use a lot of wheat flour for dusting. If you cud correct me I can tell you u have. Made my day.. 'Cooz I love jowar & I would like to use ur method to make it quite often.
    Thanks
