Tandoori roti is similar to out regular roti. Usually we cook over tawa. So if Roti is cooked in a tandoor oven, it’s called tandoori roti. Just the way of cooking. Now in this period, we may crave for tandoori style roti. It is easy to recreate at home using tawa. I wanted to give it a try in oven too, but forgot, sure will post that version too. I already made pita bread in oven, so pretty much confident, roti also turns out good.

What is the difference between a naan and tandoori roti?

For a long time, I thought if naan is made with whole wheat flour, it is called tandoori roti. But its not.
Naan is made fully with maida and have yeast and leavening agents like cooking soda, baking powder. Tandoori roti is same as roti, but just that it is cooked in tandoor instead of tawa.

Tandoori roti ingredients? What is tandoori roti made of?

You can make as same as how ever you prepare dough for a roti. Mainly it is wheat flour (atta), water, salt. Even some don’t add salt to their roti! Curd, ghee or oil, a small portion of maida also added in some cases.

How to make tandoori roti in cooker?

You can heat a cooker and stick the roti carefully in the side walls of the cooker inside, Instead of cooking in tawa. Same method of sticking water applied side to the cooker walls. Once it starts to puff, invert the cooker to smoke it. Later take out and cook properly over flame to ensure even cooking.

Why my tandoori roti falls off the pan when showing over flame?

The trick is to make the roti stick to the pan. This will be made possible only if you wet the roti sruface properly.
Also do not cook in medium flame for long time. Cook in high flame for a few seconds until bubble pops up and invert immediately to show over flame. Later you can again cook the roti before taking off the pan to ensure even cooking.

Now what is the consistency of the dough that is best for a tandoori roti? Not too tight that cracks while rolling. Not too sticky as it will be difficult to handle when you apply water. So, soft and pliable dough is perfect just like we make it for roti. If water quantity is less, then it turns too hard. If more, you will get softer results. Just make sure it doesn’t affect the handling of the dough too sticky.
