Maize Flour Paratha (Makkai ka Paratha)

It has been a long time wish  to make Maize flour roti,  but I was postponing it since Maize flour has very less adhesive nature. Even after browsing so many blogs I didnt get confidence.   So,I switched over  from making roti and landed in making Maize flour  Paratha and amazingly the outcome was very successful...
