  • 1 cup cornmeal/ maize flour makki di atta
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour flour
  • 1.5 tsps baking powder
  • to taste salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tbsps olive oil
  • 2 nos eggs large
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp flax seed powder
  • 1/4 cup corn kernels frozen
  • handful coriander leaves freshly chopped
  • 2 tbsps jalapenos chopped
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds


  • In a bowl, mix and sift all dry ingredients i.e flours, salt, sugar, flaxseed powder and baking powder together.
  • In another bowl, whisk all the wet ingredients together i.e eggs, buttermilk, milk and oil. Whisk till well blended.
  • Now mix the wet ingredients in the dry ingredients just till incorporated.
  • Add the jalapenos, corn kernels, coriander leaves. Like Nandita, I also added a few spoons of brine of the jalapenos here.
  • Pour in a greased loaf tin. I also lined the tin with aluminium foil as I find the loaf easy to remove if its lined and I had run out of baking/parchment paper.
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 200C for about 20 minutes or so till a skewer comes out clean from the centre.
  • We had it with spicy green chutney and tomato sauce and a tall glass of orange juice. Perfect for breakfast.
