Makki Ki Roti

Makki ki roti is a classic Punjabi corn meal flat roti spiced with green chili, ginger, and some other spices. The combination of makki ki roti with sarson ka saag and butter is quite famous. This is another one of my husband's favorite dishes.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes
Serving: 4 (8 rotis)

  • 1 1/2 cup corn flour / maize flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flout
  • 1/2 teaspoon carom / ajwain seeds
  • Pinch turmeric powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced green chili
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced ginger
  • Salt to taste
  1. In a bowl, mix together all of the ingredients together. Knead the dough together adding warm water as needed.
  2. Divide the dough in eight equal portions and shape into balls
  3. Roll out each ball by sprinkling a little corn flour on a pastry board to help the rolling process
  4. Heat a tawa and place a roti on it, cook on medium heat until one side is half done. Flip it over and cook until both sides are golden brown
  5. Serve hot with a dollop of butter or purified butter/ghee
  6. Make the rest of the rotis the same way
