How is roti different from naan?
Roti has varying thicknesses but it is never thicker than naan. Naan is usually much thicker than any type of roti and will have a dense mouthfeel in comparison to roti. However, both of these flatbreads will be soft and chewy.
Is roti the same as chapati?
Roti and chapati are both unleavened wheat-flour bread rolled out much thinner than naan and cooked on a Tawa, or flat griddle.

Are Rotis healthy?
Roti is a very healthy dish to eat as it is packed with fiber due to the use of wheat flour.
