Garlic Roti

If I start counting varieties of ‘Indian Breads’, it will definitely go beyond my imagination!!! Being an integral part of Indian cuisine, these breads are prepared with different ingredients n different techniques in different regions of the country… Roti, Thepla, Paratha, Kulcha, Naan and many more categories… and each one of these with a number of sub-categories too!!! 
Among all of them, we love flat-breads flavored using minced garlic… Ignoring my blabbering here, here you go with the easy-to-follow recipe of ‘Garlic Roti’ cooked on gas itself :)


Makes: 6-8
1 cup Wheat Flour
1/2 cup Maida
3 tsp Garlic paste
1 tbsp Yogurt
1 tbsp Butter
2 tsp Oil
Salt, to taste
Lukewarm water, as required
– Mix wheat flour, maida, salt, oil, 2 tsp garlic paste and yogurt in a big bowl. Knead a soft dough using lukewarm water.
– Cover it with a damp cloth and keep aside for half hour.
– In a tadka pan, take butter and 1 tsp garlic paste. Heat (or microwave) till butter melts. Keep it aside.
– Knead the dough for a while one more time and divide into 6-8 equal balls. 
– Roll into thick chapatis and roast them on nonstick pan till you find brown spots on both the sides (quite like you do with normal roti).
– Apply garlic butter generously over it.
– Serve hot with any gravy of your choice!!! :)

– You can alter the proportion of wheat flour and maida as per your choice.
– Dried herbs can be added before kneading the dough to make them more aromatic!
– I cooked it on gas! Alternatively, tandoor can be used too :)
