Makki Di Roti
Maize flour - 2 cups
Asafetida - 2 pinches
Butter (to smear on top of roti)
Mix flour, salt and asafetida.
Add sufficient hot water to form a stiff dough.
Carefully add the water by using a large spoon.
Knead well and form balls. Cover and keep aside for 10 minutes.
Place a plastic sheet on the surface. Place the ball on sheet.
On the top of the ball, again place the plastic sheet.
Now flatten into round discs with fingers.
Carefully remove the upper sheet and remove the disc and place over the greased griddle.
Add cooking oil or ghee.
Cook thoroughly on both the sides.
Continue with the remaining balls.
Smear the roti with butter and serve with sarson ka saag.
To this roti, spinach, fenugreek leaves & radish can be added and prepared. But I preferred the plain one.
Always Knead every ball before making discs.
If you want to make rotis in larger quantity, knead them in smaller quantity.
