  • I use Shan Tandoori masala powder.  You can use any brand of tandoori masala.  These are available at any Indian grocery store.  If you do not have it available substitute with 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder, 1/2 tsp paprika, 1/2 tsp black pepper powder, 1/2 tsp coriander powder, 1/2 tsp garam masala and 1/2 tsp monk fruit sweetener.
  • Keep an eye while baking the roti.  It does well baking at 350°F for about 12 minutes.  It should be taken out of the oven when it starts to darken into golden color.  If it overcooks, the roti starts becoming crispy and difficult to work with. See image in instructions or section or video for how it should appear to take out of oven.
