    Can you white people please STOP calling roti or chapati as bread.
    We don't eat it with milk or make a sandwich out of it. Calling it bread just bcoz it's made with same ingredients???
    Comn guys not everything made of flour is bread.
    It's just our ROTI and we eat it with subji that's the fact accept it, don't try to convert it according to your convenience.
    Roti and bread are entirely different concepts and eaten differently, maybe you don't know the difference cuz you're not familiar to that.

    Roti and parantha is way more common than naan and that is the worst roti you can make ,
    I dont know from where these people bring INDIANS who always have half knowledge and wrong facts.

    Lachha means "Flakey" dude...
    Why are indian people abroad so ill-informed, yet so sure of themselves..
    Also, roti, lachha paratha, and naan are all mostly North to mid indian food. South indians use rice based breads.
    And this guy probably is South indian, that's why the roti didn't puff up I guess. .. He doesn't do this everyday! It's not his staple.

    A roti that didn't puff completely is not a good roti.

    When the roti was finished. Cutting it with both hands triggered the Indian in me, 'Don't use left hand to break the roti!!!'. Hahaha. It's not that something any Non Indian/Hindu would follow just something most mothers taught their children in India.

    The Naan was undercooked and the roti should’ve been thinner.
    Otherwise great work on getting things right!

    I don‘t know what it is. I am so sorry but the mic picks up on the bass tones of your voices way too much. If i hear it over a decent box i only hear bassy mumbling. Had to listen to this over my phone speakers in order to understand anything.

    That does not even remotely resemble a naan. It's literally the same as pan made 'roti'. Bread cooked in a 'tandoor' is distinctly different, and that's known as naan. This Indian guy needs to work less on his accent and more on his culinary skills.
    Edit: OMG! Just looking at how thick and rigid the roti he makes looks I can tell its gonna be leagues behind what we get in India.
    This guy sucks. Cheapest places here would be better than this circus he's running.

    Bhakari or rotla is another type of Indian (Maharashtra, Gujrat, rajsthan) bread made of rice flour or millet flour or sorghum flour.. it's really very healthy and gluten free
