    Who in their right mind adds salt after making a roti. 😪
    It has to be added to dough while making it.

    I am offended by just look of the Roti. It is supposed to be smaller in size, soft and round. And putting oil or ghee in dough is not necessary for a soft roti.

    my fave thing abt indian food is how they always triple check that i actually want it hot

  • Urja Khandhediya

    Why am I so offened that they're calling roti a bread? If you really want to learn how to make Indian food, come to India and visit a dhaaba

    Try as I might, my hands always get dirty when I cook, especially when bread is involved. I’m embracing it now. It’s actually really nice to see a chef embrace working with their hands. Mom used to make fresh roti all the time, and the recipe showcased here is similar, minus the buttering and salt. I saw you add salt and i was like 😧. You almost want your roti to be a bit bland-it’s your foil to a flavorful tikka or sabsi (although maybe I shouldn’t knock it till I try it). And true, parathas are great on their own, or with yogurt. I actually used to eat it with ketchup when i was younger. Anywho, this video has made me think of revisiting cooking Indian again, so many thanks for showcasing this!

    You add salt after the roti is cooked? Interesting...

    A nan doesn't have sugar in it. Maybe this chef had a way of making it with salt but an authentic nan doesn't have sugar at all, not even salt as a matter of fact. If not in tandoor it could be cooked on the flip side of indian-pan called tavaa. It's of iron. Roti is always made on open flame so there is nothing like your pan could not do it. Plus the rotis were not kept on flame or pan for sufficient time.

    If rotis are breads. Going forward, pieroggis and dumplings are samosas. Pizzas are parathas. Hot wraps are kathi rollis. Burgers are vada pavs. Crepes are sweet dosas.

    "Eat it with Cheese"

    that's some shit my dad would say. The other day he put cheese into his paratha. That elavates the whole game, a hint of spices and boom.

    Roti is included in everyday meal in India in almost all houses, it is not once in a week thing.
    In traditional way or the way we eat roti in India is we eat it with subji which can be a stir fry of vegetables or daal or curry, we don't add salt on top and we don't put jam and butter unless you're trying to make your kid eat roti😂.
    On the other hand naan and laccha paratha is something you will find in street food and restaurants.

    When I was an under grad there was this amazing indian place next door that made a sweet Roti that was to die for. I am planning on making some next time I have guests over.

    I thought it was only real naan if it was baked in a Tandoori-certified oven, otherwise it was called something else. Am I wrong about that?

    I love eating Roghni Naan with some Seekh kebabs and/or Tikkas. It tastes so good.
    Paratha tastes good with a lot of foods, but I personally like it with fried eggs and with Chicken tikkas.
    I personally hate Roti. It's been 8 years since I started eating it, and recently, I've hated it so much. It's dry and got everywhere in my braces. That's my personal opinion, I know a lot of people who like it (Like everyone in my family, besides me)

    Honestly, couldn't get through the video. He's not giving measurements on how much yeast from what I heard, isn't going through the recipe in a discernible way. He gets asked questions in the first part of the video and sort of just answers a question that wasn't asked. Idk, just me. 4:33 in, I'm out.

    That's not at all what a Naan looks like when you eat in here in India!!
    Naan is made in a Tandoor. It has charred edges and it is really crispy on the outside and soft on the inside!!
