Makki di roti and Sarson da saag

Makki Di Roti and Sarson Da Saag is very popular dish of Punjab. The combination of Makki Di Roti and Sarson Da Saag is very famous in fact we can say both are made for each other. It is one of those traditional dishes which Indian aspire to eat, but usually try it in restaurants. So here I am presenting the recipe which you can conveniently prepare at home.

Makki Di Roti in its very traditional form with only maize flour is difficult to bind and roll into rotis. So I suggest adding a little amount of gram flour to make a nice dough and it eases the roti making process.

We generally prepare Sarson Da Saag  during winter time as during this season fresh mustard leaves are available very easily. Usually people prepare it with bhathua leaves but I prepared it with spinach  leaves also because spinach is very easily available.

Ingredients for Makki Di Roti

2 Cup maize flour
1/2 cur gram flour
1/2 cup warm water
2 tablespoon mustard oil/ Refine oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black jeera
2 tablespoon ghee for cooking

Method for Makki Di Roti

Take all dry ingredients in a bowl and add mustard oil/ refined oil.

Add water and knead into a firm dough.

Make small sized balls of the dough
Grease board with some oil/ghee and make rotis on it using a rolling pin or just by pressing with hand..

Roast Makki di roti on tawa and apply 2 teaspoon ghee on it.

Roast it till light brown and Makki Di Roti is ready to serve.
