About this recipe: This is once again a classic Punjabi recipe that is a winner accompanied with sarson ka saag. There is nothing like sarson ka saag with makke ki roti on a cold winter afternoon! It is a little difficult to make but over the years I have finally learnt it! You may get disheartened trying to roll it with a rolling pin but believe me with a little bit of patience and effort anyone can make it!
