    Traditionally, we call this 'Makki-Methi Ki Beri'. This is a Saatvik treat people enjoy in winters and it's very tasty. :)

      This looks like a great recipe! I'm going to make it tonight.

      For those who do not have an ethnic market in their area, Maize is Spanish for 'Corn' so you'll want to look for a corn flour :)
