Makki di Roti using white corn meal

The second bread stub that I am doing is Makki Di Roti in South Indian Style and using white corn meal. I usually get white corn meal for dusting for pizza stone. Apart from corn bread and pudding, I use it for making this roti. I make it similar to ragi roti. Usually we have this with Sarson ki Saag, but as I am making this in south Indian Style, the side dish is also South Indian style spinach curry :-)

  • Now slowly add water and mix them well to form a dough.  (Good thing about this roti is it doesn’t need to sit for a long time)

  • As I don’t get banana leaf, I go with zip loc for rolling process. Apply some oil in the zip loc cover.

  • Make small balls from the dough and press it in the zip loc and spread it out into thin roti as much as you can.
  • Heat the tawa and cook the roti in a usual way by applying oil. Usually this roti takes 1.5 to 2 minutes to get cooked.

Thats it, yummy and crispy roti is ready.

Serve hot with butter and saag. As this roti has onion and chillies, you can eat it with pickle or ketchup too.   2015-01-03 19.12.44
