Chapatis made from jowar flour are fibrous in nature

Highlights
  • Maida has often been a cause of concern amongst health experts
  • You may want to shun maida completely from your diet for weight loss
  • Replacing maida with jowar flour instead is a much better bet

Indian cuisine offers a wide range of delectable dishes that are diverse not only in flavour but also in their appearance. Delights like rajma, chhole, shahi paneer, dal makhani and chicken curry are some of the dishes that are prepared in most Indian households on a daily basis as they are loved by people of all age groups. We often pair these dishes with pooris, bhaturas or naans without realising that they are all maida-based and may cause harm to our health in the long run. All-purpose flour, also known as maida, has often been a cause of concern amongst health experts and nutritionists across the world. This is primarily because all-purpose flour is refined and processed, which can further give rise to various health issues, including weight gain.

If weight loss is on your mind, then you may want to shun maida completely from your diet. Replacing maida with jowar flour instead is a much better bet, both in terms of taste and health. Chapatis made from jowar flour are fibrous in nature that can turn out to be beneficial for the gut and digestive system, further facilitating weight loss, as per health experts. 

Mumbai-based YouTuber Alpa Modi has shared an easy-to-make and quick recipe of Jowar Ki Roti on her YouTube Channel 'Something's Cooking With Alpa', wherein she has used gluten-free jowar and rice flour to make this healthy recipe.

Jowar comes packed with good quality fibre that cannot only help manage obesity, but is known to regulate blood sugar levels and is considered as one of the best foods for diabetics. Jowar roti can be paired with any dish of your choice and you can savour it without any guilt.
