How to Make Makki Ki Roti

  • Mix all the dry ingredients together. Make a hole in the middle and pour hot boiling water to it. Mix it lightly with a spatula.
  • Let it sit for a few minutes or until you can handle the dough. You want a thick smooth dough which is not too tight or soggy.
  • You should be able to shape the dough into a ball without it sticking all over your palm.
  • Knead it well until smooth.
  • Divide the dough into small balls.
  • Place it on a lightly greased zip lock bag or any plastic sheet you have on hand.
  • Flatten it slightly with your palm
  • Now place another plastic sheet on top of the flattened dough and slowly pat it down to flatten it further.
  • Remove the top plastic sheet.
  • Now very slowly transfer the roti on to your palm.
  • Be careful since the dough can break easily at this point.
  • The plastic sheet will peel away easily since you have greased it.
  • Now drop this on to a hot (medium-high heat) pan.
  • Drizzle some ghee all around it.
  • Turn it on the other side after about 3-4 minutes of cooking or when you see it turn a deeper shade of yellow and brown red spots.
  • Serve hot topped with some butter.
