Crispy Garlic Tandoori Roti

One of the most simplest bread to prepare is tandoori roti. I am writing this in a very very quick way – Perhaps this is the shortest blogpost on my blog… πŸ™‚

Serves: 10 rotis

Preparation time: 2 hours

Cooking time: 5 mins

Appliance: Gas oven tandoor / Microwave / Oven / Simple Tawa


  • 2 cups wheat flour or APF
  • 1.5 tsp Bluebird yeast
  • 1.5 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1 cup Finely chopped coriander leaves
  • Butter
  • 2 tsp finely chopped garlic
  • 1 tsp white til

I personally like using wheat flour more than APF as wheat flour is still healthy!


  • Mix sugar and yeast in warm water and let it prove for 20 mins.
  • Mix it well in wheat flour + coriander leaves
  • Knead a dough using this water + some extra warm water if required.
  • Let it rest for 1 hr till the dough doubles it’s size.
  • Heat Gas Oven Tandoor.
  • Roll out breads in your desired shape and cut it from mid.
  • Let it get baked in tandoor but give final touch on plain gas.

  • Mix garlic and till in the butter.
  • Use this butter to spread over the Rotis.
  • Crispy garlic Tandoori Roti is ready! πŸ™‚

Serve it hot with the curry of your choice… I serve it with my version of Baked Palak Paneer. πŸ™‚Β

  1. Thanks for bringing your crispy garlic tandoori roti to the Fiesta. I’m always on the look out for roti/naan recipes. So tell me how is this different from naan? It surely looks like it, and I just love how it puffs right up when immersed in the hot flame. Lovely!

    1. Thanks Loretta… Naan and Tandoori roti are very different… Wherein Naan requires lot of curds and milk to knead the dough…Tandoori roti just needs baking powder and yeast… I have not used baking powder due to health purpose… πŸ™‚ Naan needs resting time of 5-6 hours whereas for tandoori roti, 1 hr is fine enough!!! πŸ™‚
