Traditionally, we call this 'Makki-Methi Ki Beri'. This is a Saatvik treat people enjoy in winters and it's very tasty. :)
- 2 cups yellow maize flour (Makkai, available at any Indian grocery store. Maize is Spanish for 'Corn', so a regular corn flour )
- red chili powder, to taste
- 1⁄2 teaspoon coriander powder
- 1 cup fresh fenugreek leaves, cleaned, washed and finely chopped (methi)
- 1 -2 green chili, washed, ends trimmed and finely chopped
- hot water, to knead, as required
- oil or ghee, to fry
- In a bowl, sift together the maize flour, salt, red chili and coriander powders together.
- Add green chillies and fenugreek leaves to the bowl.
- Mix well.
- Add hot water, as required, and knead the mixture well into a dough (similar to how you make puri dough).
- Pinch off small rounds of the dough.
- Use a rolling pin and make beris on a board dusted with flour (like you make rotis), about 4-6 inches in diameter.
- Use ghee/oil and hot water to flatten them gently and carefully.
- Fry the beris on a hot tava (non-stick griddle) using a teaspoons or two of ghee or oil and spreading it all over each beri.
- Serve hot with mango pickle and buttermilk on a cold winter night to enjoy it to the max!
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 :)
