Tandoori Roti



Tandoori Roti is a type of Indian flatbread that is cooked in a tandoor, a cylindrical clay oven. It is made from whole wheat flour and is usually served with curries, vegetables, and other dishes. The dough is kneaded with water and oil, and then rolled into a thin circle before being cooked in the tandoor. The roti is cooked until it is lightly charred and has a smoky flavor. It is usually served hot and often topped with ghee or butter.
