The times have changed now and we have pre-cooked rotis available in market. But, lets get to know about the most integral accompaniment of an Indian kitchen – roti. Roti is a term used to describe flatbreads, which are used to eat vegetables, gravies, etc . The term ‘Roti’ is specifically used to address flatbread made using wheat flour (Atta).

Roti can be rolled to a range of thickness. Thick roti , commonly known as parantha are made using flour and stuffing (aloo, paneer, gobi etc). Thin, soft ones are called chapatti and the smallest fluffy flatbreads are called phulka. When we deep fry small disc in hot oil, it is called puri.

Roti is rolled on a wooden elevated board called the chakla and the rolling pin is called belan. A pair of tongs help in easy flipping of the roti. They are generally cooked on a stove top using a flat pan, but when they are cooked in a clay oven , it is called as a tandoor. A variant of roti made using refined flour (Maida) is called as naan. The same maida dough when deep fried is known as bhatura.

Odia Rotis, Did you know that Odia eat more rice than rotis? 

Odias love their rice. Rice is consumed all across the state in different forms like Khechuri, palou, pakhala bhata, kanika, etc. Traditional Odia meals do not have Rotisor Parathas but have savoury or mildly sweet Pithas like chakuli pitha(similar to dosa but slightly thicker), enduri pitha, Chitau pitha (similar to neer dosa), etc.

Janta roti (which translates to pre-cooked roti) is a soft roti make of whole wheat flour. The flour is first cooked in milk or water (similar to the process of making choux pastry) which makes the rotisso soft that they melt in your mouth. This roti, though not consumed in all parts of Odisha is a favorite amongst kids.

In the past few decades, globalization has changed different aspects of the Odia culture including food habits. In the globalized and cosmopolitanized Odia households, people relish breads like soft and fluffy burger buns,  yeast –leavened dinner rolls ,  store-bought pretzels or bagels , different types of parathas, puris, luchis etc.
