The Indian subcontinent is home to the spherical flatbread known as roti. In many South Asian, Southeast Asian, Caribbean, and Southeast African nations, it is frequently consumed.

It is prepared by combining water and stone-ground whole wheat flour, sometimes referred to as gehu ka atta, into a dough. Its unleavened nature makes it unique. On the other hand, kulcha and naan, both from the Indian subcontinent, are made with yeast. Like breads worldwide, roti is a common side dish for various meals.

Flour, water, and optional salt, butter, or oil are combined to make roti. The dough is then allowed to rest. Next, the dough is divided into balls and rolled into rotis using a rolling pin. The rotis are then fried in a pan called a tava.

You can attempt These few late-night roti recipes, regardless of the type of roti you have or how you make it. 

7 Remaining Roti Recipes To Try

1. Chips Roti

Crispy, healthful chips may be made with rotis, and who doesn't enjoy spicy chips and dip? Grab the rotis and get set to prepare the snack. Each roti should have a thin coat of olive oil on both sides before being topped with seasonings. Slice them into strips, then spread them on the baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for about 8 minutes or until the edges begin to crisp and become brown. Present it alongside a yoghurt dip!

2. Paratha

This is when the exciting part begins. Make the most of leftovers to create these delicious Punjabi delicacies. Take out your rotis and the potato sabzi from the previous evening, of course! Place the sabzi on half the roti and hold the other half over it! Cook it until it becomes crispy. After that, all you have to do is eat, spreading lots of butter on top!

3. Roti-Ladoos

Yes, nothing compares to motichoor ladoos, but sometimes you just have to find something else to satisfy your cravings! Tear the roti into little pieces for roti laddoos. Add the jaggery and ghee to a bowl and stir until well combined. Divide into equal portions, then top each with a few roti pieces and roll each into a ball. Store them in tightly sealed containers!

4. Samosa Roti

How many times have your parents advised you to go grab samosas from this sweet store your family loves when unexpected guests arrive at your house? Yes, a great deal! The next time anything similar comes up, roti samosas should save the day. To make it easier for the roti to take on the shape of the samosa, place it on a moistened muslin cloth. Deep-fry with a potato or pea stuffing within! With these delicious and nutritious samosas, your visitors won't want to leave.

4. Roti Quesadilla

If in doubt, choose Mexican! This heavy, cheesy meal goes well with chapatis. Place the roti on a sanitised surface and prepare the roti quesadillas. Arrange your preferred vegetables on it, and top it with cheese and chutney. Keep it in the oven until the cheese melts, then fold it in half. Serve the chips with ketchup after cutting them into triangles!

5. Roti Lasagna

The recipe for roti lasagna is a flexible dish with an Indian twist that will quickly leave one with an empty plate! Set the oven to 180 degrees and cut the onions and capsicums into thin pieces. Garlic, onions, and capsicums are added to hot oil in a pan and cooked. Transfer the remaining roti to a baking dish. Spread the mixture again over another chapati. Using a sharp knife, cut through the layers a few times. Top with the remaining veggie mixture and mozzarella cheese. Bake for 20 minutes in a preheated oven, then serve hot!

6. Korkee

Maharashtra presents Korkee to you once more. Since Maharashtrians consume rotis almost daily, several roti cuisines originate from this region. Having said that, don't anticipate anything spectacular from this one! Korkes are simply a variation on Gujarati Khakras, which are produced by letting the rotis dry completely and then serving them with various chutneys or just onions as they start to crisp up on their own!

7. Pizza

Move on to Italian! It's also time to prepare the best Italian pizza one can with rotis! Consider a roti covered in an abundance of melting cheese and topped with onions, capsicums, etc. Warm this deliciousness in a microwave, pan, or grill! The pizza gets better, and the slice gets fancier!

Now that you know these recipes you can freely make them and avoid wasting up brilliant midnight delicacies. It’s only a matter of opportunity. Play around with various toppings and add on to the roti to make it more interesting.
