Makkai Di Roti

Makkai Di Roti is a authentic Punjabi dish. It is quiet famous as a combination of Makkai di Roti and Sarso da saag. Well, getting Sarso Saag(mustard green leafs) in Hyderabad is bit difficult. But, yes getting Makkai ka aatta is bit easy. The first time, I had the wonderful combination of Punjabi cuisine is a popular Punjabi Restaurant in Bangalore. This weekend I tried making Makkai di Roti. Having different varieties of roti's & paratha's is something that my husband appreciates and I love experimenting for him. I had served this with corn and panneer gravy. Do give it a try.

•Cornmeal (makki ka atta) 1 1/2 cups
•Whole wheat flour (atta) optional 1/4 cup
•Salt to taste
•Unsalted butter as required

Add salt and whole-wheat flour to the cornmeal and mix well. Add warm water and knead to make a medium soft dough. Divide into eight equal portions and shape into balls. Pat each ball between dampened palms to make a roti of medium thickness. Alternatively, roll out each ball between the folds of a greased plastic sheet. Heat a tawa and place a roti on it. Cook on moderate heat till one side is half-done. Turn over and spread some white butter over the surface. Turn over and spread some more butter on the other side. Cook till both sides are golden brown. Serve hot with a dollop of white butter.
