image image One of my fav winter foods….I can eat these delicious Makki ke Paranthe almost every day! The addition of mooli and methi take a traditional Makki ki Roti to new heights! Mom served these with the usual suspects…makhan, mirch, chutney & dahi! However the most delicious accompaniment was the khatti-Mithi-teekhi Pyaz Tamatar ki Chutney….yummmmmmmy!

Delicious they are no doubt! However many of us find it a daunting task to handle makki ka atta. So I outline below…a step by step pictorial process, as taught by mom! Hope this will help you demystify them for you! 🙂

Method:
Take 2 med to large moolis.
image
Wash, peel and grate.
image
Take a bunch of methi. Pick leaves and wash 3-4 times completely immersed in water till no grit remains.
image
Mince fine along with 2-3 green chillies and 1 inch of ginger.
image
Also take about 2 1/2 cup makki ka atta
image
Now transfer the grated mooli, minced methi and makki ka atta in a shallow dish. Add salt and red chilli pwdr for seasoning.
image
Now using your fingers, mix all ingredients and start bringing the dough together.
image
Pat into a smooth ball of dough. Absolutely no water is to be added. The moisture released from the mooli and methi leaves is enough to bind the dough.
image
Rest dough for 15-20 minutes.
image
Break small rounds of dough.
image
Place on a plastic sheet. I like to use a zip lock bag.
image
Using your fingers…pat the dough into a thin circular shape.
image
Smoothen sides to give uniform shape.
image
Gently flip the roti from the plastic sheet to your palm and place the roti on a hot Tawa.
image
Cook for a minute.
image
Then drizzle a little oil and shallow fry on both sides….
image
till deep golden.
image
Best eaten right off the Tawa….with a slice of butter placed on top and some delicious Khatti-Mithi-Teekhi Pyaz Tamatar Ki Chutney on the side…Mmmmm!
