Gluten-free roti recipe Easy with makki ka atta/ cornmeal flour with rolling pin [Recipe in English]

 if you have recently discovered that you are sensitive to gluten and cannot have wheat chapati, worry not as there are plenty of gluten-free roti options for you to try out. From ragi roti to jowar chapati, rice roti, cornmeal chapati or makki ki roti, besan ki roti, and millet chapatis, you will find numerous ways to make gluten-free chapatis without wheat at home. It takes only a little effort to make gluten-free makki ki chapati without breaking. 

The cornmeal flatbread turns out super soft and will become a regular for those who love all things makka/maize or cornmeal. By the way, there is a world of difference between cornmeal and cornflour so do not confuse them with each other.

Let's make makki ki roti without breaking with a rolling pin.

ingredients for makki ki chapati recipe easy: 

1/2 cup- cornmeal flour, 

1/4 cup+2 tbsp- water or a little more

1/4 tsp- salt

 1/4 tsp methi powder (fenugreek powder)

1/2 tsp- ghee

How To Make makki ki roti with a rolling pin

To begin with, heat 1/4 cup+2 tbsp of water. Add 1/2 tsp of ghee and a little amount of salt. Let the water come to a rolling boil.

Stir in 1/2 cup of makki ka atta and keep covered for 20-30 mins.

Then gently bring together the dough. It should be pretty easy. If the dough feels dry, do not hesitate to use a little extra water while bringing it together as a ball.

Now sprinkle little extra water and let it rest for 5 more min.

Now we are ready to make makki ki chapati without breaking. I keep on saying without breaking because the cornmeal roti literally remains soft. But I still suggest eating it within 1 hour of preparation so you can enjoy the soft puffed chapati.

Take a small ball and rub into dry flour. Make a chapati. You may try making a roundel with a utensil. Roll out the chapati to flatten it more.

Cook on a hot skilled on low flame first.

Turn the heat to high once you flip the side after a few seconds. Flip the chapati again.

Now flip it once more before cooking it directly on the fire. It will puff easily. But if you want to cook the chapati directly on tawa, makki ki roti will still puff. Press with ac cloth or a roti press. I have this wooden roti press that I prefer to make chapatis with.

Do not forget to apply some ghee after the roti is done to keep it soft.

Enjoy with a curry of your choice. We relished makki ki chapati without wheat flour with Odia style matar aloo tarkari and sirke wale pyaz. I have posted the recipe of pickled onions already.

I hope you find this video to make makki ki gluten-free roti easy. Do not forget to share it with your family and friends. Let's spread the word about healthy recipes.

Do millets contain anti-nutrients? Yes, they do. In fact, all whole grains, including oats, contain phytates, which bind to minerals and make their absorption difficult for the body.  Soaking is the first step toward reducing anti-nutrients from millets. Soak for at least 6-8 hours to make digestion easier. Discard the soaked water and then proceed to the next step of cooking.
