Makke ke Paranthe

Makke ke Paranthe is an amazing north Indian flatbread, made especially during winter months. Cornmeal or maize flour is kneaded with whole wheat flour, fenugreek leaves and grated radish.

They are enjoyed best with loads of ghee, sarson ka saag or pickle.

Makke ka Parantha

The quintessential Sarson ka Saag and Makke ka Parantha for you and me every winter is finally on the blog!

I learnt making it a year ago from Suruchi’s mom when she was visiting her. Why would I need her to learn this?

Well you need to make her recipe and eat it once to know why I needed to learn. Also she being a Punjabi justifies it all the more!

And I must say that it is the best combination of sarson ka saag and makke ka parantha without copious amount of oil or ghee (clarified butter) or butter going into it.

You can add that extra ghee (clarified butter) or butter but this recipe necessarily doesn’t need it, it is sooo good!! You can add any veggie of your choice like cucumber, onion etc to the parantha dough.

Using wet dough makes it easier to spread the dough without sticking or breaking.

Whoever has eaten this parantha, is all praises for it and end up eating more. It tastes best when served hot but I have eaten it after few hours as well and it retains the flavour and taste very well after few hours also. Serve it with sarson ka saag or curd or pickle of your choice.
