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!

  1. Combine butter, milk, and salt. Add the mixture to the flour. Knead the dough until it's smooth.
  2. Let the dough rest for about 30 minutes at a room temperature. Cover it with a cloth or cling wrap.
  3. Dust the working table with flour to prevent the dough from sticking.
  4. Cut the dough into eight equal pieces and roll into balls. Roll out each piece of dough.
  5. Heat small amount of oil in a pan over a low heat. Cook each piece for about two minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  6. Place cooked bread in a plate covered with a towel to maintain its softness.
  7. Continue cooking the rest of the dough. Serve it while still hot.

Did you know that you can store cooked flatbread inside a freezer?

All you need to do is separate each piece with baking paper and stack it up in a sealed container or a ziplock bag.

      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.
