Cook Time 15 mins
Course Main
Cuisine Indian, Punjabi
Servings 6 breads


  • 2 Cups Makkai ka aata (Cornmeal)
  • Salt
  • ½ Cup very little lukewarm water for kneading or as required


  • Sieve the flour and salt together.
  • Knead the flour into a soft dough using lukewarm water. Give it a rest of 5 minutes.
  • For making rotis, spread butter paper/parchment paper, dust some cornmeal on it, take a portion of the dough, flatten it with your palm.
  • Take a big portion as the rotis need to be little thick. Very thin rotis become had in a short time and are difficult to chew and digest.
  • Cover it with another butter paper and roll the dough with very light hands, or u can flatten it with your palm if the dough is soft enough and holds the shape.
  • Transfer the roti very carefully to girdle/tawa.
  • Cook on medium flame to a golden brown.
  • Put a generous dollop of butter or ghee on it( as generous as your diet allows!!)


For those living outside India, pls buy Makkai Ka Atta that is available at Indian Grocery stores.
Also, very old Makki Atta does not give good results. Prefer the one with latest Packaging Date.
