Naan (leavened Indian flatbread)

Probably it is the most famous Indian bread.

It is normally served with all meals like tandoori chicken or all kinds of kebabs.

Its ingredient list includes yeast, flour, sugar, and water, as well as yogurt and ghee.

Traditionally naan is made in a tandoor, it can be easily recreated in an oven or pan at home.

Naan is served hot and brushed with ghee or butter.

In non-traditional ways, different varieties of naan are available, like garlic naan or cheese naan.

Indian meals aren't complete without naan at its side.



Chapatis are made of whole wheat flour known as atta, mixed into the dough with water and optional salt in a mixing utensil called a parat, and is cooked on a tava (flat skillet).

The word chapati means "slap", "flat" which describes the traditional method of forming rounds of thin dough by slapping the dough between the wetted palms of the hands.

With each slap, the round of dough is rotated.

Chapatis served with curries, dry sabjis, chutneys, or dal.



The parotta, unlike the paratha, is made with maida flour, which has a higher gluten percentage. Usually, parottas are eaten with vegetables or chicken, mutton, or beef (a spicy curry).

Also, it served during breakfast or lunch with a dal (read: lentil curry) but has recently seen numerous modern updates—stuffed with onions, sardines, and slices of cheese, or served sweet with condensed milk, Nutella, and bananas.

Many people are confused with the paratha and parotta as both are flatbreads and share similar crispy flakiness and layers.
