Types of Indian Bread

If you're a fan of Indian cuisine, you are likely familiar with the staple side dish, bread. Indian cuisine is known for its wide variety of delicious and nutritious bread options, each with its unique flavor, texture and preparation method.

For those new to Indian cuisine, it's important to note that Indian bread is not like the traditional bread you may be accustomed to. Indian bread is primarily made with whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, or a combination of both. Instead of yeast, Indian bread typically uses a leavening agent such as baking powder and baking soda. Additionally, Indian bread is typically baked at high temperatures in a tandoor, a traditional clay oven used in Indian cooking.

From the famous naan to the popular roti, Indian bread is a crucial component of any Indian meal. This article will introduce you to the various types of Indian bread, including their distinct flavors, textures, and unique preparation methods. So, grab a cup of chai and get ready to explore the wonderful world of Indian bread.
