DIRECTIONS

  • Mix corn meal and salt in bowl.

  • Cook breads in either a skillet with oil or ghee until brown on both sides on low-medium heat.
  • Serve hot with Chutney.
  • Serving Tip: Stack them by spreading melted butter between each bread.
  • Tip for fist time user: Makki Ki Roti comes from the Punjab. The rolling out bread into perfect circular shape will be challenge at first. However, this skill can not be taught and only become better with practice.
  • Customize: Customize by adding cumin seeds, garam masala, chopped fresh coriander or other spices on this basic recipe.
