Jowar-Sorghum Paratha:   Nowadays people have become more health-conscious. But in daily life we don’t find much time to try some traditional recipes, we always try easy and quick recipes. Today I am going to introduce a new recipe which can be prepared quickly, and also super tasty and healthy too.
Best and healthy for all age groups and can be prepared any time like breakfast, tiffin, lunch and dinner.

When we prepare parathas, we feel too lazy to knead a dough for paratha which is not only messy but also time-consuming Then here is the ultimate solution for you. Prepare a liquid dough and make crispy parathas with it. The preparation method is similar to that of cheela (pancake) and the parathas will taste just as good as the classic one. You can also prepare the mixture a day before and make delicious parathas the next morning in just 5 minutes with this liquid dough. So, roll up your sleeves and try this recipe today itself.

Impressive Health Benefits of Jowar (Sorghum)

 

  • Gluten-free:

Gluten is a protein component found in wheat and barley-based foods. It causes digestive problems such as bloating, pain, and stomach cramps. Jowar is a gluten-free whole grain. It is an excellent alternative for people who wants to avoid gluten in their food.

  • Fibre:

Jowar is packed with a high quantum of fibre. Fibre stimulates the digestive system, which helps you stay at optimal weight.

  • Muscle Power:

Packed with essential Minerals and Vitamins Jowar is a powerhouse of essential vitamins, antioxidants and minerals. It is loaded with good amounts of calcium, copper, zinc, phosphorous, potassium and cell-building B vitamins. The presence of these essential nutrients help keep the body healthy and keep all the ailments at bay.

 

  • High in Protein:

100 grams of Jowar provides 11 grams of protein, which supplies the body with energy and aids in cell regeneration.

 

  • Improves Heart Health:

The abundance of fibre in jowar helps lower LDL (or bad cholesterol) levels in the body, thus reducing the risk of a heart attack. The cholesterol-lowering properties of jowar also reduce the chances of hindered blood flow, arteriosclerosis and plaque formation.

 

  • Boosts Blood Circulation:

Iron and copper are two essential minerals found in Jowar. These minerals come together to play a vital role in improving the body’s blood circulation. Iron is crucial to developing red blood cells in the body, while copper helps enhance iron absorption in the body. Thus, consuming the grain helps improve the development of red blood cells.

 

  • Good for Bone Health:

Because it contains high magnesium levels, jowar helps maintain calcium levels in the body (magnesium increases calcium absorption).

 

  • Controls Blood Sugar Levels:

Jowar is a complex carbohydrate that digests slowly. As a result, it leads to stable blood sugar levels. Hence, it is a great diet choice for diabetics and people who want to lose weight.
