Jonna / Jowar / Sorgham is the 5th most produced GRAIN, besides wheat, rice, barley and corn. 

It gives amazing benefits to our health. Most importantly, its Gluten free. Its high in fiber, rich in protein, best suitable grain for diabetic patients. Apart from all these, it has high levels of nutritional value, calcium and iron. Who would not try and stick to recipes with such a grain suitable for all diets?? 

This is an Instant Dosa / Crepe recipe, which requires just 2 main ingredients to make them quickly yet remarkably filling and tasty.

I made them for dinner during these holidays. And we all thoroughly devoured them with just the spicy chutney as a condiment. Definitely, give a try and do let me know!! 🙂
