To Indians, roti is one of the major dishes in their staple diet list. One can make rotis in different ways and people do use different ingredients to make one. Though regular rotis are made from whole white flour (which has high fibre, protein and carbohydrate), there are rotis made from other things as well.
Roti is also popularly known as chapatti and in different states of India one can get variations of these chapattis. Here are some popular roti types that one can get in India.


This is a major component in most North Indian meals and plain naans are mainly made from oil, yeast and flour. If one is not comfortable with yeast, they can replace it with other ingredients like baking powder, milk and yogurt. They are mainly made in a tandoor and before serving hot; they are brushed well with molten butter. One can pair them with any veg or non-veg dishes.
