The Rich Heritage of Indian Breads

In the tapestry of Indian cuisine, bread holds a special place. It has been an integral part of Indian culture for centuries, woven into the daily lives of people across the country. Indian breads are more than just a means of sustenance; they symbolize warmth, togetherness, and the art of communal dining.

  1. Rotis: Rotis are the epitome of simplicity and purity. Made from wheat flour, water, and a pinch of salt, these unleavened flatbreads are rolled out by hand and cooked on a hot griddle. Rotis have a soft, pliable texture and a mild, nutty flavour that complements a wide range of Indian dishes.
  2. Naans: Heavenly Pillows of Delight Naans, on the other hand, is a more indulgent treat. These leavened breads are made from a combination of refined flour, sometimes yoghurt, yeast, and ghee (clarified butter). The dough is carefully kneaded, rested, and then baked in a tandoor (traditional clay oven). Naans emerge from the intense heat with a fluffy interior and a slightly crispy exterior. They enchant the palate with their buttery aroma and can be enjoyed plain or infused with garlic, and herbs, or even stuffed with cheese.
  3. Parathas: Stuffed Goodness Parathas are a culinary masterpiece, combining the simplicity of rotis with an explosion of flavours. These layered, flaky breads are made by rolling out dough and then stuffing it with a variety of fillings. Popular options include spiced potatoes, paneer (Indian cottage cheese), or minced meat. Parathas are then cooked on a griddle with a drizzle of oil or ghee, resulting in a delightful combination of crispy exterior and savoury fillings.

Indian breads serve as the perfect accompaniment to a myriad of flavorful Indian dishes. They play a vital role in balancing the spices and textures of curries, gravies, and tandoori delicacies. The simplicity of rotis lets the vibrant curries shine, while the pillowy naans soak up the rich sauces with finesse. Parathas, with their fillings, add a layer of complexity and a burst of flavour to any meal. Together, these breads enhance the dining experience, transforming it into a symphony of taste and texture.

At Spice N Ice, we understand the art of pairing Indian breads with our culinary creations. Our passion for authentic flavours ensures that each bread is crafted with care, transporting you to the heart of India with every bite.

Roti recipe

The Process of Crafting Roti

Roti, the beloved staple Indian bread, are a testament to the skill and precision required in their creation. The process begins with combining whole wheat flour, water, and a pinch of salt to form a soft and pliable dough. The cooked dough is then divided into small portions and rolled into perfectly round discs using a rolling pin. These discs of cooked flour are then slow cooked on a hot griddle, where they puff up and develop a beautiful golden-brown colour. The result is a simple yet satisfying bread that forms the foundation of many Indian meals.

Achieving Soft and Fluffy Roti

The secret to achieving soft and fluffy roti lies in the balance of ingredients and technique. The quality of whole wheat flour plays a crucial role, as it should be finely ground and free from impurities. Adding the right amount of water and kneading the dough to the ideal consistency is key to obtaining a soft and elastic texture. The rolling process requires skill and practice to achieve even thickness, ensuring that the rotis cook evenly. Cooking the rotis on a hot griddle with gentle pressure helps them puff up, resulting in a light and airy texture. The perfect balance of ingredients and technique is the key to creating roti that are a joy to savour.
