Butter Tandoori Roti is a popular Indian bread that is usually made in a clay oven called a tandoor. However, you can also make it on a stove top using a cast-iron skillet or a tawa. Here’s a recipe for Butter Tandoori Roti:
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
- 1/2 cup warm water
- 2-3 tablespoons melted butter for brushing
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, salt, and baking powder. Mix well.
- Add the melted butter and mix it into the flour mixture with your fingertips.
- Gradually add the warm water to the flour mixture, and knead the dough until it’s smooth and soft. Add more water if necessary.
- Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for 20-30 minutes.
- Divide the dough into equal portions and roll each portion into a ball. Flatten each ball with your palm, and then use a rolling pin to roll it out into a thin, round shape.
- Heat a cast-iron skillet or tawa over medium-high heat. Once the skillet is hot, place a rolled-out roti onto it.
- Cook the roti for about 30 seconds, or until it starts to bubble and brown spots appear on the underside.
- Flip the roti over and cook for another 30 seconds.
- Brush the roti with melted butter, and then flip it over and brush the other side with butter as well. Cook for another 15-20 seconds on each side, or until the roti is cooked through and has a golden brown color.
- Remove the roti from the skillet and place it on a plate. Repeat the process with the remaining dough portions.
- Serve the Butter Tandoori Roti hot with your favorite curry or dal.
