What is Makki di Roti?

Makki di roti is the popular Punjabi flatbread made using cornmeal or maize flour. Makki mean maize, di stands for of, and roti means a flatbread, so makki di roti as in maize flour flatbread. The best way to relish this winters’ delight is with sarson ka saag. However, we have it with many gravies and chutneys and it tastes divine.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Makki ki Roti

Makki ki roti calls for maize flour. It is kneaded with lukewarm water and flavored with carom seeds (ajwain). The tricky part about making makki is roti is rolling it. Traditionally it is prepared by pressing between the palms, without the use of any rolling pin. That’s a bit umm… difficult! Another technique used to simplify the process of rolling makki ki roti is by using plastic bags. However here I am sharing a technique which is drastically simple and anyone can use it to make makki roti. I have used parchment paper and it works great. You have got to try it and see!

Another maize (makki) based recipe is of makki ka dhokla. This recipe comes from the state of Rajasthan. Find it here. Another winter’s delight that I would like to mention here is gajar ka halwa. It is the most popular dessert in winters. Find the recipe here.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
