MAKKI KI ROTI


This is a traditional Indian flatbread from Punjabi Cuisine. It is made with corn meal and is served as an accompaniment with sarson ka saag (mustard greens).

Ingredients:
Makki ka ata ...... 1 cup
Wheat flour .......... 3-4 tbsp
Oil / ghee ............. 1 tbsp ( I like to add a little mustard oil too)
Ajwain / carom seeds ....... 1/2 tsp
Salt ....... to taste
Warm water .... to knead
Method:

1. Mix the 2 flours, salt, oil and ajwain. Knead the dough using warm water. Set aside.

2. Make rotis sprinkling a little flour. You can also roll between the plastic sheets.

3. Roast them on a griddle. Smear with ghee.

These rotis are usually served with Sarson ka saag.

I have served with Kashmiri Saag ( click on the name to see the recipe)

  4. Dear Shobha
    Hummm ! That dash of mustard oil speaks some thing, I must try your recipe. Yesterday I saw a ready to eat Sarosho ka sag pack being sold at Haldiram. So one major head ache is over ( for eating off season ) Of course the canned ones available from a Himachal company and others are awesome!..
    Next time you get fresh Sarsho ka sag , try sarso-palak - bathua sag mutton, a departure from the traditional ones.
    Have a nice week
