Indian Rotis, 150 different Rotis across India

Indian rotis. Indian roti collection. different rotis across India. There was a time in India, when if a young woman could perfectly puff a roti, she would be an ideal daughter-in-law material. 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). India being a diverse country, each state has their own variation depending upon the local ingredients.

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.

Gujarati roti recipes. The most common of all roti's in a Gujarati household is the phulka or lovingly called as Rotli in Gujarati. Traditionally rotlis are cooked on a tava and later put on direct flame for it to rise and puff. A drizzle of ghee or oil is the finishing touch given to this light on stomach flatbread.

Another popular Gujarati flatbread that reminds me of my nani is the Padvali roti which is made by layering two thin rotis together. Summer is here, it is time to savor on some aam ras and nothing accompanies better than the Gujarati Padvali roti.

Another type of roti is Thepla which is made by adding different masalas to the whole wheat dough and is cooked in oil to make it very soft. A very popular variant of Roti is Makhani Roti for the jains.

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.
