Cuisines differ across India ‘s diverse regions. India has a wide variety of regional and traditional cuisine which is mainly influenced by geographical conditions and religion .

An Indian everyday meal consists of daal , vegetable , rice , roti , salad and curd . Each state has its own special meal , and these meals vary with festivals . I have been cooking these traditional meals from different states from time to time .

While cooking these meals we realise that it is not the daal or the veggies that are different , even the breads differ . The staple and the most common is the Roti / Chapati / Fulka . Whole wheat flour is used to make these rotis . It definitely is very interesting to see different types of rotis being made in different states .

The Gujrati ‘s mill the wheat into a very fine flour , roll them very thin and smear lots of ghee . They call these Rotlis . The Sindhis on the other hand prefer a thick Fulko where ghee is smeared inside as well as outside . The texture , the appearance of roti is different in different states .

A flatbread is a bread made with flour, water and salt, and then thoroughly rolled into flattened dough. Some Indian breads are leavened while some are not . Some are made on tawa , while some are baked . There is so much variation ! The traditional roti varies in terms of the flour used . Millets , rice flour , pulses all are used to make flatbreads. Some breads are stuffed and then cooked with ghee / oil , these are famous as Parathas . The fried Flatbreads are called Poori ‘s .
