Makki Ki Roti

recipe of making makki ki roti

Makki ki Roti

Makki ki roti is traditional Punjabi flat bread recipe made from maize flour served with sarson ka saag, this is a healthy bread recipe ideal for breakfast and dinner in winters. You can also have makki ki roti with green garlic chutney or jeera tamatar me aloo or simply with a scoop of butter.
Generally rolling out makki ki roti is difficult to many of us, if you use fresh flour(local flour mills provide fresh in winter) and kneaded properly you can easily roll out without the help of plastic sheets.
Green chillies , coriander leaves or green garlic can be added to flour. I have tried it with chopped onions but it break while cooking. Initially if you find difficulty in rolling out you can take help of plastic sheets but trying manually after 2-3 times you will be able to roll them easily.
Ingredients required and detailed instructions for the recipe are as follows:

You have to wet your fingers twice or thrice, spread it as thin as you can.

8. After a minute turn it carefully and cook from another side.
9. While cooking press the sides(rough edges of roti) with the help of spatula.
10. Cook from both sides till golden brown in color.
11. Prepare all the rotis with the same manner.
maize flour roti recipe
Dough should be soft , adding oil to it is must else roti will break on tawa while turning.
Try to spread as thin as you can , else it will not cook properly from inside.
It is said that one makki ki roti takes as much time as 3 normal wheat flour phulkas or roti needs, hence give sufficient time for cooking.
While cooking on tawa don’t turn it again and again, for proper cooking only 2 turns are sufficient.
