Try This Mouthwatering Recipe for Homemade Butter Tandoori Roti!


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


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, salt, and baking powder. Mix well.
  2. Add the melted butter and mix it into the flour mixture with your fingertips.
  3. Gradually add the warm water to the flour mixture, and knead the dough until it’s smooth and soft. Add more water if necessary.
  4. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for 20-30 minutes.
  5. 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.
  6. Heat a cast-iron skillet or tawa over medium-high heat. Once the skillet is hot, place a rolled-out roti onto it.
  7. Cook the roti for about 30 seconds, or until it starts to bubble and brown spots appear on the underside.
  8. Flip the roti over and cook for another 30 seconds.
  9. 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.
  10. Remove the roti from the skillet and place it on a plate. Repeat the process with the remaining dough portions.
  11. Serve the Butter Tandoori Roti hot with your favorite curry or dal.
