Tasty Punjabi style breakfast idea for your family. Easy to make Mooli Methi Makki Ki Roti is made from corn flour, grated raddish and finely chopped methi. Its quintessential punjabi breakfast in winters with a dollop of freshly made white butter.
Being a Punjabi makki roti with saag are know to be the ultimate duo to me. Makki is a heavy flour. It increases in the stomach while digesting and thus keep you full for a longer period of time. It dates back to the time when the green revolution was happening in punjab, mothers & wifes used to cook this combo and took these to the fields to feed the men.
I have been having makki roti in breakfast since a child. This is the cheat/instant version of the same. My mother used no plain flour additions.
Directions to make Mooli Methi Makki Ki Roti-
1 cups makki
1 cups wheat flour/atta
1cup mooli/ raddish
1 cup fresh methi/fenugreek leaves washed & finely chopped
1 large onion chopped
1 tsp ajwain
1 tsp salt
Oil for kneading (5-6tbsp)
Water for kneading as required
Mix all the ingredient except water in a large bowl.
Add water and bring it together. Use oil for final kneading.
*Be careful while adding water as its easy to over water the dough.
**Oil yout hands and knead well. The more you knead the more softer the dough will be and the roti will be softer too.
***Atleast 3-5 min of kneading is recommended.
Cover with a damp cloth and rest the dough for 15 mins.
Knead again for 1 min.
Now heat the tawa. Take a big ball of makki atta and very gently dab completely in plain flour and begin rolling to make a round roti.
Now place gently on the tawa. Flip to cook on other side. Cook from both sides with ghee or butter and serve with a big dollop of butter.
Frequently Asked Questions –
My makki roti is breaking a lot?
If your makki ki roti is breaking try kneading the dough again with wet hands. Or try adding more wheat flour to adjust. You can also make roti with a simple hack. Just plase the dough ball in between cling wrap or parchment paper and roll the roti, not too thin. Now carefully remove the top wrap and place the roti on the tawa.
Is corn flour and maizd flour the same?
Yes, they are the same flour just named different.
