Jola (Sorghum/Jowar) + Wheat flour Mooli Parota

Jola (Sorghum/Jowar) wheat flour and Mooli (White Radish) Parota is yemmy food. Especially kids love to eat Parotas.

We always want some change in our food. Kids love to have these parotas and spicy food now a days. Making them to eat home made food can be practiced preparing variety of eatables. Giving a little twist with adding some thing to help them to give energy and stay healthy should be the main aim. Here is a recipe which I have mixed Jola (pearl millet, very healthy grain) and wheat flour to prepare parota and mixed with Mooli (white radish) and very little spice to give good aroma. This Parota can be packed to school lunch box also since it stays soft and it does not get spoil. This Mooli Parota will be one of the favorite food for the whole family of all age group.

Things Needed:

Wheat flour: 2 cups
Jola (Pearl Millet): 1 Cup
Radish (Moolangi or Mooli ); 2
Salt: to taste
Garam Masala : 1/2 Tea spoon
Jeera/Cumin Powder : 1/2 Teaspoon
Turmeric Powder: a pinch
Coriander leaves: 2 Tablespoon.
Oil:  5 to 6 Tablespoons (1/2 cup)

1. Wash Radish and remove the outer skin and grate the radish and keep it aside. Wash and cut coriander leaves.
2. Mix Wheat and Jola flour in a big bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of oil to it.
3. Take a big bowl and add grated Radish and cut coriander leaves and spice powder. (Jeera, garam masala powder.
4. Add salt and little turmeric powder.
5. Mix all the ingredients nicely and add wheat and Jola/Jowar/Sorghum flour.

6. Mix it well and add water (little by little ).
7. Mix it nicely and prepare the dough. Let the dough rest for five minutes. Divide the dough into small ball size.

8. Take one ball size of the dough and roll out the dough in to chapati using dry flour on each side. So you can roll the parota easily.

 9. Keep a tava on the fire. Heat and sprinkle oil around the pan.
10 Now put the rolled parota on the tava and cook on both sides. Use little oil on both sides.
11. . Repeat the same with remaining dough and prepare parotas.

12. Serve Hot Parotas with a cup of curd and pickle or any curry of your wish.

You can use warm water to prepare the dough, so that the parota will be soft.  You can even add one boiled potato also to the dough while mixing. (Boil the potato allow it to cool and then remove the skin and smash it and then mix it with flour).  The consistency should be like chapati dough. Do not use much water. Then you find it difficult to roll parotas. Add water only if necessary. Add a spoon of fresh ghee on Parota, if you are packing them for kids. (Lunch box). Ghee helps the parota to be soft for a long time.
Serves : 3 
Time 25 to 30 Minutes.
