Introduction - Paleo Roti
Roti can be considered as the queen of the Indian Thali. Roti has become an integral part of the Indian food culture. We can’t imagine our Indian Thali without our Rotis. (Roti also Known as Chapati) is a round flatbread consumed around the Indian Subcontinent. They are made from whole wheat flour traditionally known as ‘Gehu ka Atta’ which is combined with water to make a dough. But if you are the one who follows certain diets like Paleo then you might have to bid adieu to Rotis.

Paleo diet (also known as Cavemen’s diet) is a dietary plan based on foods similar to what might have been eaten during the Paleolithic era(Stone-age era), which dates from approximately 2.5 million to 10,000 years ago.
The diet avoids processed food and includes vegetables, fruits, nuts, roots, and meat. It excludes some foods like dairy products, grains, sugar, legumes, processed oils, salt, alcohol, and coffee.
