Homemade Tandoori Roti using a Toaster!

Tandoori Roti is an Indian unleavened whole wheat bread traditionally made in a clay oven or Tandoor. However, for those who do not have a clay oven or Tandoor, here is an easy way of making Tandoori Roti at home using a bread toaster. These healthy rotis can be served with any gravy based veg or non veg dish.

Atta (wheat flour)- 2 cups
Maida (all purpose flour)- 1/4 cup
Sugar-1 tsp
Salt to taste
Yoghurt- 3 tbsp
Ghee or butter - 2 tbsp
Water- ¼ cup or as needed

  • Mix atta, maida, sugar and salt in a mixing bowl.
  • Add the yoghurt and mix to make crumbly dough.
  • Add small quantities of water as needed and knead to smooth dough.
  • Leave this dough out for about 1 hour.
  • Divide the dough in to small balls and dip the dough ball into dry flour and roll it out into an oval or round shape disc (thicker than chapathies).
  • Place rolled out roti on a hot tava and cook until bubbles appear, flip the roti over and cook until light brown spots appear. Keep aside.
  • Repeat the process until all rotis are cooked on tava.
  • Pop these rotis into a toaster and toast them on medium until they puff up and darker brown spots appear.

  • Once the roti is done, remove from toaster and smear it with some ghee on one side. (you can completely omit this for a healthier version).

  • Place the roti in a paper towel and lightly crush it.

  • Serve hot!
