Tandoor Roti Is Made From Which Flour?

A lot of times, most of the time it happens that almost all the blogs are about describing tandoors in one way or the other, no one talks about the material that is used or should be used in a tandoor to prepare a perfect meal. So here in this blog we are going to talk about the flour from which tandoor roti is made. 

A tandoor is just like other cooking equipment but only better, just like we use wheat or other sorts of flours to make a roti or chapati likewise in a tandoor you can use wheat, or an all purpose flour to make a tandoori roti. In other cooking equipment the problem is that even though they give you a perfect meal but don’t add a flavor of its own but with tandoor no as such problem is faced as tandoors enhance the taste of the food prepared. 

Now that we know the flour from which tandoori roti is made, let us now know the technique of making tandoori roti and naan in a tandoor

Steps to make tandoori roti or naan

Preparation of dough:

  1. Collect the following ingredients, it is on your preference whether you want to make a roti from all purpose flour i.e. maida or wheat. 
  2. Take wheat, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and sugar. 
  3. Take 2.5 cup atta, 1 tsp of sugar, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/4th tsp baking soda, and half tsp salt and mix it all well. 
  4. Add half cup of curd and mix it well. 
  5. Add water in batches and knead the dough for 5 minutes. 
  6. Now add 2 tbsp of oil and mix it with the prepared dough.
  7. Make sure that the dough prepared is smooth, punch and knead it. 
  8. As the last step to prepare the dough add some oil to make it greasy then cover it and let it rest for an hour. 
  9. Take a ball size of dough in your hand, then take some flour on the platform you are working on, sprinkle some flour on the piece of dough you have and start to flatten it slightly with the help of your fingers.
  10. Roll it gently, keep the dough uniform from all sides, make sure to keep it slightly thick and when you are done dust off the excess flour off of it.
  11. Take 3 tsp of water and spread it gently all over the rolled dough. 
Placing rotis inside tandoor:
  1. Once you are done spreading water on the roti remove it gently from the plate you have been rolling the roti on and pat it a few times and by using the naan gaddi start placing the water side of roti on the walls of the tandoor so that it gets taped to it. 
  2. You can see when the rotis are done, with the help of two skewers you can easily pull them out of the tandoor without harming yourself. 
  3. Repeat the same steps with the number of rotis you want to prepare. 


You can add some ingredients to the dough you prepared, some people add coriander, and some spices to it. You can do that too to enhance the taste.
