Right here’s how one can make Sindhi dodoh with sorghum millet

I’ve been requested many occasions if I can share some hacks as to the way to make excellent Sindhi dodoh with gluten-free flours. This column is devoted to my gluten-sensitive mates who need their on a regular basis consolation meals with millets. Dodoh is good for a cold winter morning, with a sizzling cup of kaada or tea.
This can be very good in your intestine. I all the time attempt to add seasonal veggies to my millet meals. There are, nonetheless, a number of dos and don’ts that individuals have to know. Earlier than I proceed, listed below are a number of ideas.

1. Study two-fist parts. If a dodoh meal exceeds two fists, begin including many winter veggies. Inexperienced garlic is my go-to ingredient. Like mint is for summers, inexperienced garlic is obligatory for winters.
2. Though mixing flour will not be really helpful, from time to time it’s okay to make use of or combine cornmeal, pearl millet flour and even brown rice flour along with your dodoh. I’ve loved making dodoh with barnyard millet flour (freshly milled at residence).
3. All the time knead with heat or lukewarm water. Gluten free flours want some remedy and this helps the flour bind effectively.
4. No matter veggies you might be including, hand-pound them in order that their juices are launched. It will make your dodoh rather more flavourful.
5. All the time unfold the dough instantly on the pre-heated and well-greased forged iron griddle. There’s something concerning the little burnt, crisp and densely-textured dodoh.
6. As soon as achieved, cowl it. I’ve used a heavy forged iron griddle. Any heavy base is sweet.
7. I’ve used the rolling pin to make it thinner. Though you possibly can keep away from this step, it’s value doing if you happen to love skinny dodoh. Simply dunk them in your favorite dip or plain yogurt.
