Breads play a vital role in any main course cuisine specially in India. Roti, chapati, phulka, parantha, kulcha, poori, bhatoore, etc. are there to name a few. Tandoori Roti is one of the most favourite indian breads eaten in every part of India. It goes with any curry and sabji. This Tandoori Roti recipe is with seasonings of Coriander, Sesame Seeds and Garlic on the top. I have baked it in oven at home since generally we can not have tandoor at homes. You can also try it easily on tawa on gas stove.
Let’s get ready for absolutely scrumptious Coriander & Garlic Tandoori Roti.
PREPARATION TIME: 15 mins COOKING TIME: 10 mins
- Whole Wheat/Multigrain Flour (You can also mix white flour, maida) – 2 cups
- Curd – 1/4 cup
- Baking Soda – 1 teaspoon
- Cooking Oil – 2 teaspoon
- Warm water to knead the dough
- Salt – 1/2 teaspoon
- Sugar – 1/2 teaspoon
- Coriander Leaves – 1/2 cup finely chopped
- Sesame Seeds (Black or White) – 1 teaspoon
- Garlic – 2 teaspoon finely chopped
- Butter for greesing the rotis.
Method to Cook:
First, we will knead the dough using flour, curd, warm water, cooking oil, baking soda, salt and sugar. Keep this dough aside for atleast an hour. This makes the roti very soft and fluffy.
Meanwhile, you have to pre-heat your oven at maximum 250 – 300°C and keep the baking tray in the middle so that it gets too hot. Since, we do not have tandoor at homes, we have to make sure that the oven achieves it highest temperature, else roti can be undercooked or too hard to eat.
Meanwhile, after the dough is fermented for an hour, we can start making our roti. Take a dough ball and put a bit of oil to greese. Roll it out a bit and then place sesame seeds, coriander leaves and chopped garlic on top of it. Now roll again to make round roti. Don’t make it too thick or too thin.
Place the parchment paper on the oven tray. After the oven is pre heated, place the rotis on parchment paper. Let it bake for 5-7 minutes and you can check in between, if the top starts turning brown.
You can cook the roti on tawa as well. After the roti is rolled out, greese the other side of roti with water and place it on pan. When the roti starts getting cooked turn the tawa upside down and cook the surface of roti with seasonings on gas till you see brown spots. Your roti is cooked now.
Take the rotis out from oven or gas stove, greese them with butter and serve them hot with chhole masala or amritsari chole or any indian curry you like.
