Roti made with makki / corn / maize flour is quite popular in Punjab. Makki ki roti and Sarson Ka Saag go together. Very healthy and a hearty meal. Visiting my friend who hails from punjab, i got to see a roti prepared using corn flour and left over vegetable sabzi. Mixing with sabzi or any other cooked vegetable will make this roti very soft. Any vegetable sabzi will work for this. If not sabzi, then you could make the dough with boiled potato or paneer or tofu. Now after kneading the dough, it will need a bit of skill to make perfect round roti. Some experts tap with both their palms and roll out the dough. Plastic sheets /wraps has been used to help roll the dough.
For this recipe i am not going to give any specific measurements, since you can just roughly mix the corn flour, left over sabzi and make a firm dough. I hope the detailed and step by step picture will do the talking and help my reader understand.
Corn flour ( white Instant corn masa flour has been used here )
Any left over sabzi or potato or tofu or paneer
1 ) Into a big thali or plate, add corn flour.
2 ) Add left over sabzi.
3 ) Mix the flour and sabzi. Knead well and make a stiff dough.
4 ) Make big dough balls. Place one sheet of plastic sheet on the rolling area. Place a dough ball, then place another plastic sheet on top of the dough.
5 ) With a rolling pin, roll out the roti. Roti will be thicker than the usual roti.Take off the top plastic sheet, then with the help of bottom plastic sheet, lift the bottom plastic sheet slowly and invert the roti to your palm.
Serve hot. This roti will not be good cold. So roll out the roti and cook when you want to have it. Rest of the dough can be stored in the fridge. This roti is good to eat by itself.
