Tandoori Roti is a type of Indian bread which is traditionally made in a clay oven called "tandoor".Since clay ovens are not so common now..here is a simple home recipe which comes close to a tandoor roti and very easy to make too:)


  • Chapathi flour - 2 Cups
  • Warm water - 3/4 cup + little extra
  • Salt -1/2 tsp or to taste
  • Dry chapathi flour for dusting
  • Bread Toaster


  • Take a bowl and mix the chapathi flour and salt well.
  • Now Add in the warm water and knead well to form a smooth dough.
  • Let the dough rest for about 15 to 20 minutes before using it.
  • Divide the dough in to a medium lemon sized balls.
  • Dip the dough in to dry flour once and roll it in to a oval shape using a rolling pin.(Let it be thicker and smaller than the normal rotis)
  • Place the rolled out roti on a hot tava and cook on both sides until you see some bubbles and they turn in to brown spots.
  • Remove roti and keep in a covered hot case.
  • Repeat the process for the remaining rotis.

For Tandoori Roti:
