Jonna roti with chili chutney - Andhra Style

Here's a recipe for Jonna Roti (Sorghum Roti) with Chilli Chutney in Andhra style:

For Jonna Roti:


  • 2 cups jowar flour (sorghum flour)
  • Water as needed
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil or ghee for cooking


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the jowar flour and salt.
  2. Gradually add water and knead the flour to form a soft and pliable dough. Add water as needed to achieve the right consistency.
  3. Cover the dough and let it rest for about 15-20 minutes to allow gluten formation.
  4. After resting, divide the dough into small equal-sized balls.
  5. Take one dough ball and dust it with flour. Roll it out into a round shape using a rolling pin. Adjust the thickness according to your preference.
  6. Heat a tawa or griddle over medium heat. Place the rolled roti on the tawa and cook until small bubbles start to appear on the surface.
  7. Flip the roti and cook the other side. Apply a little oil or ghee on both sides of the roti and cook until it turns golden brown and slightly crispy.
  8. Remove the roti from the tawa and repeat the process with the remaining dough balls.
  9. Serve the hot Jonna Roti with Chilli Chutney.

For Chilli Chutney:


  • 8-10 green chilies
  • 2 tablespoons roasted chana dal (split chickpeas)
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 small piece of tamarind
  • Salt to taste
  • Water as needed
  • Oil for tempering (optional)
  • Mustard seeds for tempering (optional)
  • Curry leaves for tempering (optional)


  1. In a blender or food processor, combine the green chilies, roasted chana dal, garlic, tamarind, and salt.
  2. Blend the mixture until you get a coarse or smooth chutney consistency, depending on your preference. Add water gradually as needed.
  3. Transfer the chutney to a serving bowl.
  4. Optional tempering:
    1. Heat a little oil in a small pan. Add mustard seeds and curry leaves. Let them splutter.
    2. Pour the tempering over the chutney and mix well.

Serve the Jonna Roti with the spicy Chilli Chutney. The nutritious and gluten-free jowar roti paired with the fiery chutney is a classic Andhra combination.
