Just look at that makki ki rotiand that sweet looking pinni ka ladoo! For the uninitiated, makki ki roti is a traditional flatbread of the Punjab region of India, made from corn meal. The roti is baked on a griddle and served with cooked, spiced mustard greens and homemade white butter. Pinni is also a Punjabi sweet made from baked wheat flour, pure ghee made from cow's milk as well as edible gum, crushed nuts and sometimes flavoured with cardamom as well.

Both the makki ki roti and pinni are traditionally eaten during winters as they are supposed to be healthy for the body during chilly weather. Makki atta or cornflour does not have gluten in it and hence, is healthier than other flours. It's a great source of fibre and is rich in essential minerals and vitamins. Apart from this, makki ki roti is also incredibly delicious and we're sure Diljit Dosanjh can vouch for that!
