Indian Roti or Chapati (भारतीय रोटी या चपाती)

When I was little. I used to go to the castle(Mahal). They used to cook roti for the breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Only kids and family members are allowed in the royal kitchen or the royal cook.
We always use our etiquette. We always have to follow rules in the house.
We never use shoes or slippers in the kitchen.
Here in the USA we never bring shoes inside the house.
Their kitchen floor was clean and everybody used to sit down on the floor and eat food.
All of us used to sit down on the floor the floor has some small rugs for each of us.
While Sitting and waiting we smell freshly cooked roti and admire it and eat it.

According to the wiki,”Chapatis are one of the most common forms of wheat bread in India. Chapatis are made using a soft dough comprising atta flour, salt and water. The carbonized wheat grains discovered at the excavations at Mohenjo-daro are of a similar variety to an endemic species of wheat still to be found in India today.

The Indus valley is known to be one of the ancestral lands of cultivated wheat. A chapati is a form of roti or rotta (bread). India in the Harappan Culture as well, where agriculture was a major occupation and people knew how to grow wheat, bajra, millet and vegetables. The word roti is similar to a Sanskrit word, rotika flatbread to eat curries with”.

भारतीय रोटी या चपाती

भारतीय रोटी या चपाती। जब मैं छोटा था। मैं महल (महल) में जाता था। वे नाश्ता, दोपहर के भोजन और रात के खाने के लिए रोटी पकाते थे।
शाही रसोई या शाही पकाने में केवल बच्चों और परिवार के सदस्यों की अनुमति है।
हम हमेशा हमारे शिष्टाचार का उपयोग करते हैं। हमें हमेशा घर में नियमों का पालन करना पड़ता है।
हम रसोई में जूते या चप्पल का कभी भी उपयोग नहीं करते हैं।
यहां संयुक्त राज्य अमेरिका में हम कभी भी घर के अंदर जूते नहीं लाते हैं।
उनकी रसोई की मंजिल साफ थी और हर कोई फर्श पर बैठकर खाना खाता था।
हम सभी फर्श पर बैठते थे, फर्श के प्रत्येक के लिए कुछ छोटे गलीचा होता है।
बैठकर और इंतज़ार करते समय हम ताजा पकाया रोटी गंध करते हैं और इसकी प्रशंसा करते हैं और इसे खाते हैं।

विकी के मुताबिक, “चपाती भारत में गेहूं की रोटी के सबसे आम रूपों में से एक हैं। चपाती को आटा आटा, नमक और पानी युक्त मुलायम आटा का उपयोग करके बनाया जाता है। मोहनजो-दाaro में खुदाई में कार्बनयुक्त गेहूं के अनाज पाए जाते हैं। आज भी भारत में गेहूं की एक स्थानिक प्रजाति के लिए समान किस्म मिलती है।

सिंधु घाटी खेती गेहूं की पैतृक भूमि में से एक माना जाता है। एक चपाती रोटी या रोटा (रोटी) का एक रूप है। भारत हड़प्पा संस्कृति में भी, जहां कृषि एक प्रमुख व्यवसाय था और लोगों को पता था कि गेहूं, बाजरा, बाजरा और सब्जियां कैसे विकसित करें। शब्द रोटी संस्कृत शब्द के समान है, रोटिका फ्लैटब्रेड करी के साथ खाने के लिए “।

      1. Ah here in England a chapati is smaller and softer whereas a roti is larger an crispier I guess it’s down to how they cook them. Quite possibly ‘westernised’ which is a problem sometimes as I have been to some Indian restaurants and the their dishes are not much more than a Chicken stew 😔

      2. We have been to England for our vacation only. We never tried Indian food in England.
        I think in England several north Indian people live.
        In north India, they make bigger roti. They also make tandoori roti that one is thick and cooking style is different.
        Basically, roti is the little bit bigger in size and chapati, phulke are small.
        Kids like small chapati.
        Usually, I just buy Indian flat roti from Indian grocery store or restaurant. I am not a good cook.
        Here in the USA, we have several different countries food available. We eat different food every day.
        But cooking roti or chapati is so wonderful. When you eat fresh roti or chapati it is awesome. When you see somebody is cooking roti the smell is so good.
        I think they can cook any kind of roti or chapati. My papa like crispy roti. He always requests them whenever he goes to the restaurant please make crispy.
        Cooking crispy roti they left roti over the pan or on stove gas little bit more time.
        Try roti with any daal or malai kofta, palak paneer:)
        People in India always eat Daal and Roti:)

  1. Our favorite bread! My wife learned how to make this (and curries as well) from our Indian team leader’s wife years back and we’ve been enjoying it even without having to go to an Indian restaurant. There are several Indian groceries here selling atta flour and spices (friends also bring them from their trips to the Middle East and South Asia) so we don’t have a problem with ingredients.
