Tandoori Roti.

Tandoori Roti is an Indian flat bread made with wheat flour using tawa on a gas stove.Traditionally it is made in tandoor oven and goes well with any vegetable or curry dish.
Usually we prefer going to our favourite indian restaurant to relish tandoori items due to lack of tandoor in our kitchen,but trust me the roti made with this recipe has taste as well as texture exactly same like the one made in tandoor.
To make this roti you will need iron tava as roti will not stick to nonstick tava.


2½ cup Wheat Flour.

1 tsp Sugar.

1 tsp Baking Powder.

¼ tsp Baking Soda.

½ tsp Salt.

½ cup Curd.

Water for kneading.

2 tbsp Oil.

Butter for smearing.


In a bowl mix together wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

In this now add curd and start to kneading the dough,add water as required and continue to knead for 5 minutes.
Now add 2 tbsp oil and knead until the dough turns smooth and soft.
cover and rest for 1 hour.
After 1 hour, kenad the dough again till smooth.

Pinch a ball sized dough and dust with wheat flour.
roll gently, making sure the roti is slightly thick,on one side of the rolled roti sprinkle some water and spread uniformly.
Heat iron tawa on medium flame,once the tawa is hot transfer the roti onto the tawa.
placing waterside down, press gently, so that the roti sticks to the tava.

Cook for a minute or until the roti partially puffs up and the base is cooked.

At this stage flip the tawa onto the flame and cook until the roti is cooked uniformly.

Scrape the roti and remove in a plate,brush the roti with butter.

Serve immediately with curry of your choice.

Happy Cooking!!!
