Makki da atta is the base for makki di roti, the quintessential Punjabi flatbread.
Atta means both flour and dough. So it can quickly get confusing if you’re not a native speaker. But now you too know and will never be confused again. Well, at least about atta and makki da atta, anyways.
The dough is chewy, has the light hint of corn, and perfect for flatbreads. Because we use a thicker grind cornmeal the rotis have a much richer corn flavor than traditional Mexican corn tortillas. Which I, of course, am a fan of, and why wouldn’t I be? A richer flavor = more yummies.
