  • Remove the top plastic sheet. Now very slowly & carefully remove the lower sheet to transfer the circle on to your palm. You have to be careful while removing lower plastic sheet, as the flattened circle can break.
  • Heat a pan. Now place this flattened circle carefully on heated pan. When you see the top surface is changing color, turn it on the other side and roast it till you see the brown spots coming.
  • Roast it from both sides. Repeat the same process with the remaining dough balls. Smear butter on top. Sunahari Makki Ki Roti is ready. Serve hot with a dollop of butter/margarine, and with any of your favorite curries or spiced lentils. Enjoy!
