A recent favourite to our collection of gluten-free dishes is jowar pizza! The crust is simple to put together, healthier and leaves you feeling lighter and more satisfied because it is made with Indian jowar atta or sorghum flour. And if you find yourself craving pizza more frequently than you'd like, it would be a good idea to vary things up and use this crust instead of the yeasty one! The whole-grain goodness of jowar, also known as sorghum and a member of the millet family, has earned it the moniker "new quinoa" throughout the world. And despite the positive press that sorghum is currently receiving, jowar has long been a mainstay of Indian cuisine. It is a gut-friendly substance that makes you feel full quickly due to its high fibre content.

Benefits Of Jowar Atta

1. Jowar has a good quantity of fibre—roughly 48% of what our bodies need on a daily basis. The bulk that fibre gives the faeces allows it to move through the digestive system more easily.

2. A coating of jowar (sorghum) possesses anti-cancer qualities and also fights free radicals, which are the cause of premature ageing.

3. Magnesium, copper, and calcium are included in jowar and support the development of strong bones and tissues. Iron, which helps to increase red blood cells, is also present in jowar.
