Palakwali Makke Di Roti - Spinach Corn Flatbread

Palakwali Makke di roti, Achar & Vegetable Korma



I love to sneak in vegetables in the traditional dishes. Many times these experiments turn out good enough to share on the blog. As I have mentioned before, I love using Mexican "Masa Harina" - (easily available in any supermarket) - for making our very own Makke Di Roti. I added some spinach to increase its nutritional value.

Palakwali Makke Di Roti
Spinach Corn Tortilla
2 cups Masa Harina (I use Bob's Red Mill brand)
1 cup shredded spinach
1/2 tsp salt or to taste
1 1/2 cups hot water
1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
1/2 tsp cumin seeds - (Optional)

Oil or butter for roasting

1. Mix masa harina with salt, spinach, ginger-garlic paste and cumin seeds if using.
2. Make a well in the middle. Add hot water gingerly.
3. Knead into a soft dough. Cover and set aside for 1 hour.
4. Make 12 - 15 uniform balls.
5. Pat directly on a hot tawa/griddle or keep one ball between two plastic sheets and roll into a flat bread.

6. Cover and let it cook. Drizzle oil or butter.
7. Cook on both sides till brown spots appear.

Note -
1. You can also add 1/2 tsp ajwain/ajmo/owa in this mixure
