There’s likely no other bread that exudes nostalgia in India like makki ki roti does for Punjabis. It shows up in movies and television shows alike, always paired with sarson ka saag (spiced mustard greens). It’s the one thing that I dream about having when my family returns to India to visit my father’s village in Punjab. Now you can make them for yourself and your family, to be eaten the traditional way or as a change of pace.
*If you are storing the rotis, reheat them before serving by warming them on the stovetop in a dry cast-iron pan over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes or place in the oven at 300°F / 150°C for 2 to 3 minutes.*
