Makki Di Roti Recipe Card


This Punjabi flatbread is made with a mix of cornmeal and whole wheat flour. While it is famous as one part of the makki di roti and sarson ka saag combination it works brilliantly paired with any other sabzi as well. Makki di rotis can be a bit heavy on the stomach so a small sprinkling of carom seeds added to the dough is a good idea to make the rotis easier to digest.

Prep Time : 11-15 minutes

  • Cornmeal 1 1/2 cups
