Serves: 2

Save recipe


  1. 1 cup maize flour
  2. Salt to taste


  1. Combine maize flour and lukewarm water in a large bowl. Knead it for about 5 minutes into a smooth and pliable dough.
  2. Divide the dough into 5-6 equal portions. Take one part at a time, apply oil on your palms and make a smooth ball. Take a plastic ziplock bag and cut it with a scissor from two sides. Open the ziplock bag, place one side of it on a rolling board and pat the dough ball on it to flatten it. Cover the flattened dough ball with other side of the ziplock bag and roll it into a roti which should be slightly thicker than the roti made from wheat flour.
  3. Heat a non-stick skillet. Carefully lift the roti and place it on the skillet. Cook on one side for 10 seconds. Flip it over with the help of a spatula and spread about half a teaspoon of oil on it with a spoon. Cook for 20-30 seconds, flip it again and spread oil on the other side. Cook on both sides till brown spots appear and the roti gets evenly cooked.
  4. Repeat this process for making rest of the rotis.
  5. Serve hot.

Makki ki Roti makes a heavenly delicious combination with Sarson Ka Saag.
