Tandoori Roti

Tandoori Roti Without a Tandoor

Tandoori Roti  is traditionally made in a tandoor with whole wheat flour. It is a staple of Punjabi cuisine.  Now a days we do not generally have  traditional tandoor at home, but still we can make this roti on a gas top. I have made this roti on an inverted wok or a Kadai. Try this method and you will not be disappointed.

Tandoori roti is best eaten with gravies like Dal Makhani,  Shahi Paneer, Dum Ka Paneer or Paneer Peshawari.

Yield: 5 to 6 serving
