‘Tiny stature, and a very large heart’, that’s what Jowari has, literally. Also known as Sorghum, this gluten free grain is good for the heart in more ways than one. The exceptional fibre content is good for the gut, and with Jiwa’s milling process, the goodness of the grain multiplies manifold. Go ahead, please your taste buds, and still watch the weight with ease with this grain worth its weight in gold!

Jowar is called by several names such as durra, Egyptian millet, great millet, kafir corn, feterita, guinea corn, Sudan grass, milo, Juwar, Jwari in Marathi, Cholam in Tamil, Jolal in Kannada and Jonnalu in Telugu. Talk about versatility!
Appearance: Quiet white – just simply a quiet white!
Aroma: This one is a secret keeper. Won’t spill any beans till cooked fully. Besides the nuttiness of the jowari, the atta doesn’t give away much whiff about the beauty it really is. Wait and watch.
Taste notes: Relish the deeply satisfying taste of jowari millet while the mild flavour of sea salt lingers on. The strong, earthy taste of bengal gram is deeply gratifying even with the quiet appearance, and combines with others to give gratification like the ‘storm after the lull’!
