Let’s face it, we just cannot imagine a day without roti! Roti is a staple in Indian food culture. Also termed as Indian flatbread, it is normally eaten with sabzis and curries. However, if you explore the regional cuisines of the country, you will find each having their own special types of rotis, using locally grown/available grains. Although atta (wheat flour) roti is the most popular one across India, grains like makai (maize), ragi, millet etc are also widely used to prepare different types of rotis.
