This tandoori roti looks wonderful. We all just love it at my place, thks for explaining the entire process in this wonderful step by step guide. Have a gas tandoor and guess that would work out as a substitute to the traditional tandoor. I make tandoori chicken in this gas tandoor. I would love to try this and make it at home bcoz everytime we want to have the tandoori roti or the naan we have to make a trip to the local restaurant.
