Things to know about Makki Ki Roti Recipe

‘Makki Ki Roti’ means bread of corn. It is an unleavened bread prepared from cornmeal and one of the widely eaten dishes in North India.

The Indian Traditional Corn Flatbread from Punjab – Makki Ki Roti, originates from the region of Punjab. Its preparation involves kneading cornmeal into a dough and rolling flatbreads out of it. Since cornmeal doesn’t contain any cohesion, it is quite a challenge to shape Makki Ki Roti. Once the bread takes its shape, the next step is to roast it in a pan. Makki Ki Roti is generally a winter and spring dish. It tastes delightful with butter and jaggery pieces. Though you can enjoy Makki Ki Roti with any Curry-based dish, its combination with Sarson ka Saag is classic. Sarson Ka Saag is a curry prepared with fresh mustard greens. The combo Makki Ki Roti and Sarson Ka Saag from Punjab is one of the most delicious dishes and makes a complete meal.
