To prepare the dough,bring 1 cup water to a boil along with 1/2 tsp oil and salt to taste.Reduce flame to low and add the jowar flour to the boiling water.Mix well for about a minute or until it turns really thick.
Switch off the stove,cover and keep aside for about 2 minutes.Transfer the dough to another bowl and leave for 5 to 7 minutes or until cool enough to handle.Knead well to form a soft dough.
Divide the dough into 8 equal parts.Roll a portion of the dough into a circle on a floured surface,keep aside.(Dust the working surface and rolling pin with jowar flour to avoid sticking)
Take another portion of the dough and roll it into a circle.Evenly spread 1 to 2 tbsp of the prepared filling over this( leaving 1/4″ space around the edges.).
Gently place the other paratha on top.Press the edges using your finger tips.
Roll paratha gently to seal completely.Heat a nonstick /iron tawa ,place the paratha and let it cook for few seconds.
