Tandoori Roti, Tandoori Roti On A Tava

Every time we are at a restaurant we are tempted to order Tandoori Rotis, because we think we cannot make it at home.

While it is awesome to bite into authentic rotis cooked in a wood-fired clay oven, you will be excited to know that the same wonderful taste and texture can be replicated at home using the humble tava!

A dough of whole wheat flour and yeast flavoured with a dash of garlic yields fabulous Tandoori Rotis, which can be cut into wedges and served with a platter of kebabs , tikkis and chutneys .
