Maize Flour Keema Parantha


Hello, and welcome to my cooking corner again. In India, from time immemorial, there has been a tradition of eating thick rotis apart from our regular chapatis made from wheat flour. In the region of Gujarat, we see that people eat rotis made from flours like bajra called as ‘Bhakri’ while in Punjab people eat maize flour rotis called ‘Makke di roti’ which is best teamed with Sarson ka Saag. In Bihar, people eat rice flour rotis. So it has been a continuous tradition to thrive on hand made rotis all over India as they are tastier and healthier too. I too personally like to eat one of these rotis once in a day. And so today I am going to share a recipe of maize flour paranthas mixed with a spicy keema batter which is really a great breakfast or brunch idea you can try anytime. It is handy to make too and super fun to taste. So let’s start with the making—
