Tandoori Roti / Tandoori Roti Recipe In oven / Baked Tandoori Roti

Today's recipe is Tandoori Roti / Baked Tandoori Roti / Tandoori Roti in Oven. Tandoori roti is made with a whole wheat flour and is not yeast based and thus its different from Naan, where as Naan is mainly made of white flour and is a yeast bread. Both are done in Tandoor / Clay oven but can also be made in stove top and in oven/baking method also. I tried the baking method and it turned out good. It is very simple and does not involve complicated process or more fancy ingredients. Just a regular chapathi dough using whole wheat flour with the addition of yogurt needed to make a very soft, flavorful Rotis in oven. Only thing is you need either pizza stone or cast iron pan which holds more heat and thus gives a tandoor effect. Now off to the recipe...
