Indian Bread

Bread is such an important part of Indian meals. We have or can have these for all the three meals of the day. Parathas are a very common and popular breakfast option in North India. We cannot imagine our meal at festivals without poori. Any special curry calls for some naan or so. Bread is an integral part of Indian meals and thankfully there is a variety of it. Some of the Indian-Breads are

  • Roti/Phulka
  • Paratha
  • Poori
  • Naan
  • Kulcha
  • Tandoori Roti
  • Rumali Roti

etc. and their variations.

The best part about Indian bread is that it can be prepared at home. Indian bread doesn’t call for many or rare ingredients. With all that is generally available in the Indian pantry, the Indian bread can be prepared.

You may not have a fancy gravy or dal on your menu, but you can pep up your dinner or lunch by teaming it up with some perfectly made naan or lachha paratha.

Here are a few Indian-Breads which you can easily make at your home:

Tandoori Roti:

This is a very simple Indian bread. It is the closest to the most popular one i.e. roti. Tandoor is a clay oven and as the name suggests tandoori roti is prepared in the same. However, you can easily make the tandoori roti at home on a tawa.

Lachha Paratha:

Paratha is shallow fried Indian bread made using whole wheat flour (generally). Lachha paratha is a plain paratha but it has many layers which makes it totally awesome and drool some. These layers are called lachha and therefore the paratha is so-called. You might like our collection of paratha recipes.

Instant Butter Naan:

Butter naan as the name suggests is a buttery flatbread that has crisp exterior and soft insides. Generally, butter naan is prepared using yeast. However, this recipe can be prepared without any yeast or tandoor. It is very easy to make this Indian bread at home. If you are looking for a healthier option, you might like whole wheat naan.

Khoba roti:

Khoba roti is a part of Rajasthani food, a designer roti! A thick chapati using whole wheat bread with some ghee/clarified butter is prepared and pinched to make a pattern. The pinching not only gives a very beautiful look to the roti but also helps it get cooked properly. You might like bejad ki roti, bajra roti, makki ki roti.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
