Made with a small assortment of ingredients commonly stocked in Rajasthani households, the Mooli Makai ki Roti is not only unbelievably tasty but also perfectly satiating. While traditionally these rotis are flattened by hand on the tava itself, here we have offered an easier way out, which anybody can follow. Just remember to serve these delicious rotis fresh off the tava, with a cupful of steaming hot dal or subzi.

what is maize flour?

  1. M​​​​​​​aize flour also called as corn meal and Makai ka atta. It is yellow coloured flour with coarse texture. Corn meal is made by grinding corn kernels into a coarse powder. Unlike cornstarch, processing cornmeal doesn’t involve the separation of bran, germ and endosperm, so you are able to retain more of the nutrients in the corn than with, say, cornstarch.
  2. Is maize flour good for weight loss? Maize flour is prepared from corn kernels which is a good source of fibre. The insoluble fibre from maize flour aids in weight loss. It will add bulk to your diet that will make you feel full sooner. Fibre stays in the stomach for longer than other contents and makes you feel satiated helping you to avoid eating in between meals.    Is maize flour good for diabetes? Being a good source of fibre, corn meal helps to prevent your blood glucose levels from shooting up. Fibre blunts the glycemic response of the meal. Therefore, it is very important for diabetics to include a lot of fibre. Being a good source of zinc, maize flour will help to manage your blood glucose levels because zinc is necessary for the formation of insulin in the pancreas's beta cells. Insulin help to keep your blood glucose levels from getting too high. See article is maize flour healthy?
