Curd/ yogurt/ dahi 2 tbsp
Oil 2 tsp
Milk ¾ cup
Salt pinch

Prepping for making Tandoori Roti / Naan

  1. In a bowl add the Wheat flour, curd and oil and mix.
  2. Once mixed take some dough in hand and press it into a fist shape. If the shape remains then we have the right quantity of oil and curd.
  3. Then start adding little milk at a time and knead a soft dough.
  4. Cover the dough and keep aside for 15 minutes.

Method for making the Tandoori Roti / Naan

  1. After 15 minutes refresh the dough by kneading it again for just a minute.
  2. Take a small amount of dough and make a ball. And then dip it in dry flour
  3. Now we are going to use a rolling pin and flatten the ball into a roti the size of bread so it fits in the bread toaster.
  4. Once the roti is rolled, then let’s roast the roti halfway on a griddle. Make sure the flame is on low
  5. Once you see some spots on the roti then flip them. And cook them half way on both sides.
  6. Then add the halfway cooked rotis in the bread toaster and turn the toaster on.
  7. Once they pop out and are toasted remove them using tongs.
  8. And apply butter or ghee and serve while hot.

 

Tips: 

  1. When guests are visiting, you can make the halfway cooked rotis in advance and then use the toaster right there on the dining table and serve your guests hot tandoori rotis.
  2. You can also take half way cooked rotis to the office and pop them in the toaster and you can have fresh hot rotis at work.
  3. You can also use this trick using your regular dough(without curd and milk)
  4. If some family member is traveling for weeks or a month, you can cook the roti 90 % without the curd and milk and pack it in slots of 5 so they can be frozen. And when ready to eat they can just unwrap one packet and pop them in the toaster and enjoy home cooked roti away from home.
