About this Recipe
Sorghum is a grass family genus with approximately 25 species of flowering plants. Some of these species are grown as cereals for human consumption, while others are grown in pastures for livestock. Sorghum bicolor, for example, was domesticated in Africa and has since spread throughout the world. Because sorghum grains
are unrelated to wheat, they are suitable for those suffering from celiac disease or gluten intolerance. In India, this gluten-free flour has traditionally been used to make pancakes, porridges, beer, and flatbreads such as jowar roti. Sorghum grain contains more protein and less fat than corn.
