Makki / Makke Ki Roti In Uttar Pradeshi Style (indian Flat Bread Made Of Maize Flour)
How can anyone miss Makki ki roti while talking about Indian food? Makki ki roti is the staple food in Punjab and some parts of Uttar Pradesh and is usually served with Sarson ka saag (Mustard leaves saag). Makki ka Atta or Maize flour is relatively less elastic and hence it requires little practice to make Makki ki roti. Alternatively you can add some Gehun or wheat flour to make the process easier. One more interesting fact is that way it is cooked in Punjab is quite different from how it is cooked in Uttar Pradesh. While in Punjab it does not have any spices and the dough is prepared only with adding warm water, in UP it has grounded and whole spices that enhances the flavour and taste. I prefer to make Makki ki roti in UP style as Makki ka Atta is little heavy on stomach so adding Ajwain and Kala Jeera helps in easy digestion. Here goes the recipe.
