Masala Jolada Roti is a gluten-free flatbread from the state of Karnataka. Traditionally jowar roti is prepared by mixing the dough with warm water and then patting it into thin circles before being cooked on the fire. These type of jowar roti which is a little tricky to make. In this masala jolada roti, we add vegetable spices and making of the flatbread is comparatively easier.
Jowar or Jolla as it is called in Kannada is a millet. Jowar is high in dietary fiber and hence when consumed on a regular basis helps in the management of obesity. It is prescribed for people who have diabetes instead of rice and all-purpose flour. Jowar is said to be high in essential minerals and vitamins and hence should be taken for a healthier body.

The difference between jolada roti and masala jolada roti is the use of vegetables and spices in masala jolada roti while jolada roti is on the bland side. I have used carrots and cucumber here along with green chillies, coriander and mint to pep up the flavour. This flatbread when served hot does not even require a side dish and is a meal by itself. We can choose to add both the vegetables or just only one vegetable. The other vegetable we can use while preparing this is the bottle gourd. Green leaf puree can also be added to this like the spinach puree. Today I have used both carrots and cucumber in making this roti.
