Griddle-Cooked Corn Flatbread (Makkai ki roti)
This flatbread (classically not flavored) from Punjab, deemed peasant food, often accompanies a puree of mustard greens and garlic drizzled with ghee (clarified butter). This version incorporates vibrant flavors that can easily accompany any meal or even be served with a dip for an appetizer.
Shopping Tip: Yellow corn flour is made from finely ground dried corn. It's finer in texture than cornmeal and should not be used interchangeably. A good substitute is masa harina--finely ground, lime-treated dried corn (hominy). Find yellow corn flour in the natural-food sections of supermarkets, in natural-foods stores or at bobsredmill.com.
