How to Make Makki Ki Roti

Today I will share step by step on How to Make Makki Ki Roti / Maize Flour Flatbread which is a Punjabi recipe and the perfect lunch and dinner in the winter season. Sarson ka saag, which I already posted, is an ideal combination with makke ka roti.

Making Makki Ki Roti is not as easy as regular wheat flour roti, because it doesn’t have that much elasticity (gluten-free) to make it flatten, the sides will crack, so special care is needed while adding water (it must be hot water). It is served by topping a dollop of ghee with Sarson ka saag. If you are not fond of ghee, you can avoid it, especially for heart patients.

Equipment needs

  • Mixing bowl
  • Tawa/Griddle
  • Rolling pin with a board

Ingredients

  • Makke ki atta/ maize flour-1.5 cup
  • Carom seeds/ajwain-1/2 tbsp
  • Water as required
  • Salt as required
  • Ghee (optional)-2-3 tbsp or as required
