Makki Ki Roti Recipe - Punjabi Makki Ki Roti Recipe

I always wanted to try my hands on makki ki roti, but whenever i go shopping i look for yellow cornflour, but i could never find it anywhere. During my last shopping i saw a packet of this flour and immediately picked one.

Unlike your normal roti, this is not easy to roll..It is quite difficult to handle and you have to roll it between two sheets of plastic. And as soon as you make a roti, top with some butter or ghee and serve immediately, else it may get hard and chewy..
