I am going to share some knowledge about a crop that is being grown in our country for several years and also has been consumed by our grandparents to stay healthy and fit in their times. This crop has been forgotten by us and many people don’t even know what kind of benefits it has on our health. Jowar is a crop which is gluten-free.
This would be a good news for people suffering from gluten enteropathy. The people who are facing problems with consuming wheat, which is actually gluten can actually consume Jowar which is free from gluten. Additionally, jowar is also high in fibre, thus the people who are suffering from cholesterol or diabetes, jowar can help these people to handle their sugar levels. If you are a person who is looking out for a diet to lose weight, then start consuming jowar flatbreads instead of normal wheat bread this will help you lose your weight faster. Jowar is also rich in iron, which is a key factor to maintain our haemoglobin levels. Jowar is baked with yeast in some countries to improve the digestive part of the crop. Jowar should be mostly consumed in winter because it helps to maintain the body heat. It is also rich in thymine, calcium, magnesium and Niacin. Thymine is necessary for our nervous system, calcium and magnesium both are required for the bone health, and Niacin or Vitamin B3 for transforming food to usable form of energy for the body. Jowar is also rich in protein, which is very good for muscle build up.
If you want to enjoy the true taste of jowar, then I would recommend you to visit Morachi Chincholi during the winter season. This is the only place where you can taste the first ripe of jowar. The people at Morachi Chincholi grow Surti jowar which is very famous for its taste. As these jowar farms are located near to this place, you will be easily provided with fresh jowar right on time. You will get a chance to taste the tender jowar stalks which are roasted in hot coal and served with dry coconut and dried red chillichutney.
