I've visited different places in India for about a month, which made me fall in love with their foods—especially their flatbread. Some famous Indian breads are bhatoora, chapati, kulcha, naan, roti, paratha, and puri. These are best served with a saucy meal like curry, grilled food like tandoori, or simple dip like cheesy corn and sausage dip. Follow my tried-and-tested recipe below for how to make this no-yeast flatbread. Enjoy!

Patricia,

Yes, it was so good especially when I cooked it on medium to high heat. It resulted to crunchier crust, but remained soft in the inside.
