While Ragi Sangati has always been something that’s regular at home, I was first introduced to Jonna Sangati by Athamma. She not only makes awesome Jonna Rotis, but uses rice to make these sangati, which is again very healthy, even though it does include Rice. Most times the amount of rice is less when compared to the regular rice consumption. So overall it’s good for health.
This also becomes an ideal food for Diabetics as consuming Jowar flour in any form is good. I am yet to learn making Jonna Roti, however making this Sangati was pretty easy as it’s almost the same way as Ragi Sangati.
The Jonna Sangati is paired with either Chicken or Mutton Gravy and mostly made on Sunday lunch to enjoy a hearty meal.
