A step by step recipe of makki di roti –flat bread made with corn flour with a pungent taste of carom seeds.

I just love to try different varieties of flour in my kitchen. And choose the best for my family. Which should be healthy and nutritious. And we all know that how much healthy the corn is.

It is a popular punjabi flat bread made from corn flour and generally served with sarson ka saag. Makki is a Punjabi word for maize (corn) and yellow flour made from it is the base ingredient for this recipe.

Traditionally makke ki roti is prepared by flattening a dough ball into round shape by repeatedly pressing it in-between palms in a thumping motion and then baked on hot tawa. However, this traditional method is difficult and requires some practice, so this step by step photo recipe uses easier rolling pin method.

However, this unleavened Indian style bread is not easy to roll as maize flour contains very less amount of gluten and sticks a lot. To overcome this problem, a plastic sheet technique is used that allows you to roll it easily. In addition to this technique, this makki ki roti recipe uses carom seeds that adds nice flavory touch to its crispy texture.

So lets proceed to the recipe –

Ingredients for makki di roti –

  1. Maize flour/corn flour/makki ka atta -2 cups
  2. Carom seeds –1/4 tsp
  3. Salt to taste
  4. Ghee as required

Method to prepare makki di roti –

  1. Take the maize flour in a large bowl.
  2. Add carom seeds and salt to it.
  3. Now add warm water little by little and keep on kneading. Don’t add too much of water at a time.
  4. Make a firm dough. It should be smooth dough. Not so much hard not so smooth. If it will be hard it will falls apart, or if it is smooth it will be sticky. So the dough should be very firm.
  5. Make medium sized balls of the dough. Now take a plastic sheet and put this dough on the plastic sheet.
  6. Now cover it with the other half of the plastic sheet.
  7. Roll it with a rolling pin and make the roti.
  8. Heat a tawa and place the roti on it.
