jowar | sorghum flour rosti with masala aloo curry

Hello frens

Sunday mornings calls for a great breakfast. Fried foods are always tasty to eat but are truly bad for health. So, looking towards the health side I tried my hands on sorghum/jowar flour which is one of the healthy alternative and is also gluten free. I mixed few flours and mixed with the spices and prepared a firm dough to prepare the rostis and served with potato vegetable curry.
