Juar Jo Dodo (Sindhi Juwar Roti)

Since starting making Jowar flour in cooking, try my hands with different recipes because we need variation, you can not eat the same old things every day. So my mom used to make this kind of bhakri with wheat flour, with onions and pomegranate seeds in it and we loved it so this one also has nice thick texture and you can add spices as per your taste and adjust it. Only thing is there is no gluten in it so its hard to make the round, either you can use your hands to make its rounds, just the way bajri rotla has to be done or you can use plastic wrap and put the dough ball in between plastic wrap and make it. Have it with hot ginger tea in the nice cold wintery days and you are all set for breakfast.

Ingredients :

3 cups of Juwar flour
1 Small onion - finely chopped
1  teaspoon grated ginger
1 Green chili finely chopped
2 tbsp. Fresh green garlic finely chopped or you can use garlic chives
A handful of chopped coriander leaves
Salt as per taste
1 tsp Turmeric powder
1 tbsp. Fennel powder (Sauf)
2 tbsp Olive oil/canola oil
Water as needed for dough
Oil as needed to cook


Mix flour, vegetables, and seasoning.

Add water little by little till you get a nice smooth dough.

Divide into 5 parts.

Heat up the pan, and if you are using hands, wet your hands, pat it gently on your palms, and try to make thin rounds by changing hands till the desired small size you get. Then put it on greased pan and quickly pat till you get nice size and thickness.

If you are using plastic wrap, put the ball in plastic, cover with other side and roll it till your desired size and put it on pan, cook on one side and flip it, add one tbsp of oil and press it with flat spoon to make it nice golden in color and flip it again so it can cook and oil gets on both side.

Take it out on a cooling rack with a paper towel in it and proceeds with rest of it.

Enjoy it with hot tea, coffee or lunch or dinner.


  1. Healthy gluten free and delicious juar jo dodo. I love them so much, especially when they're served hot off the tawa.

  2. Juar jo dodo sounds like such a delicious dish. Using plastic wraps to shape them is a great idea.

  3. So good to see the Sindhi dhodho in your blog. Nice and crispy. I love it with curd and pickle.

  4. Juar jo dodo sounds delicious and healthy. Reminds me of jowar thalipeeth that we call definitely a delicious n healthy way to eat jowar. Thanks for sharing this I will try making it.

  5. Sindhi juwar roti is similar to the thalipeeth that we make but with a slight variation. Would love to try this version sometime.

  6. Juar Jo Dodo Looks irresistible. Adding saunf sounds interesting. A nutritious breakfast option . Will try your version sometime.

  7. thalipeeth sounds similar to this Juar jo dodo.. I love to add some greens to our jowar bhakri

  8. Juar jo dodo seems to be a close cousin of Maharashtrian thalipeeth . The only challenge with GF flour is shaping them but with practice we can easily master them. I love these kind of flavored bhakris as they don't need any spl accompaniments.
