Secret of Nutrition packed mornings – Makki ki roti in winters…


First meal of the day is breakfast and I believe in nutritious breakfast.

Carbohydrate, Protein, Healthy Fat, Fibre, Calcium, Iron

Makki ” is a complex carbohydrate and it provides energy for a longer period of time.And the body uses this energy to keep our body warm in winters.That is why we are seeing it from generations that we eat “makki ki roti” in winters.

It is packed with vitamins, minerals and a great source of dietary fiber. An additional benefit is that it’s gluten-free. Its a healthy alternative to wheat flour if you happen to be on a gluten-free diet.

My kids, they love that melted butter on those soft makki ki rotis with a pinch of “red namak” made by my mom. Nutritious breakfast is the key for super energetic kids.

My younger one look forward to weekends for the breakfast of these varieties of  “makki ki roti’s ” and in fun, he says ke mumma “मकखी की रोटी बना दो”.

Ingredients :

Makki atta -2 cups

Wheat atta -1/2 cup

Raddish – grated muli one (other options: grated gobhi/mashed potato/leftover dal)

Spinach – finely chopped one bunch of palak


Red chili powder or finely chopped green chilies

Ajwain – half teaspoon

White Butter


Method: Numbered according to the picture.

makki ki roti

1- Put all the ingredients together in kneading dough bowl.

2- Mix them together and knead a soft dough with little warm water.

3- Take a water in one bowl. Spread a polybag on a platform for rolling roti. Take a small portion of dough, make it a ball and keep it on polybag platform. Dip your fingertips in water and spread the dough by spreading in all directions equally into a roti.

4- It will be easy to pick that roti from that polybag and put it on tawa (pan). Drop few oil drops around it like we do it around dosa, only for first roti. Turn it over and let it cook from another side too. Before serving, take it off from tawa (pan) and cook it directly on the flame. Cook it on the slow flame on both the side.

5- Serve hot with homemade white butter.

Over to you :

Try different variations of makki ki roti and see your kids asking for more and more. That melting butter on them is a big taste factor too.
