Khamiri Roti Recipe is a very famous Indian bread that has its origin from Mughalai cuisine. The word Khamiri refers to the yeast which is added to the dough to make it fluffy and spongy. Yeast gives a better texture to the bread and keep the bread light. Traditionally the bread is made in a clay oven which is called the tandoor but you can still make it a homemade oven and then finished off over a hot tawa. The roti has a smoky flavor when made in the tandoor that adds as an extra flavor. A spread of ghee on top before serving will make it even more delicious.
