Ingredients Serving: 3

  1. 250 grams Wholewheat flour
  2. 1 teaspoon salt
  3. 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  4. 1 tablespoon curd
  5. 1 cup water


  1. Take a large bowl, put in the flour, salt, and baking powder. Then, pour the curd in and blend all the ingredients well together.
  2. Pour a little water to this mixture and knead into a dough. Note do not pour too much or too less of water, but just enough to make a smooth dough.
  3. Cover this dough with a wet damp cloth. Keep aside for 25-30 minutes.
  4. Before you start cooking, make sure to heat the tandoor or oven for atleast 2 minutes.
  5. Make 4-5 dough balls of equal size from this dough. Put the dough on a floured surface and roll it into a large and round roti shape of thick size.
  6. If you are using a tandoor then cook it for 4-5 minutes, however if you opt for an oven, bake the roti at a temperatue of 200 degree celsius for 4-5 minutes.
  7. Once brown spots appear when the roti is in the tandoor, this means that it is cooked and you can remove it.
  8. Serve hot by spreading ghee on the roti alongside your favourite curry.

The photo is not original, the colour of wholewheat flour can’t be so white. We tried the recipe and it was no where close to tandoori roti. Full wastage of food and time.
