Different bread for different food or occasion!

Did you know, certain Indian breads are customized for certain foods? While roti, naan & kulcha can accompany any Indian entree, poori is mostly eaten with halwa dessert or chick-pea stew (Chollay). Makki Roti (Indian corn bread) almost always pairs with Saag (mustard greens).

Royal India offers gluten-free options in the form of Missi Roti. This bread does not use wheat-flour, instead, it is prepared from gram flour. In addition, almost the entire vegetarian menu is available in vegan options that do not use animal products.

We are excited to offer 13 lunch specials daily. These specials offer combinations of some of the most popular veg, vegan and non-veg dishes offered by Royal India. Each lunch special platter has generous portion sizes and is offered for an amazing price.

Why Naan Breads Taste So Good?

Fahrenheit 451, in Ray Bradbury’s novel, is a temperature where books catch fire. An Indian clay-based tandoor oven reaches a temp of 480F, leading to a chemical reaction (Maillard Reaction) between reducing sugars & amino acids to provide distinctive taste & aroma of naan bread!

Royal India has gained popularity because we prepare Indian breads, and many veg and non-veg foods in clay-based, charcoal-fueled Tandoor oven. Many Indian foods, including naan breads, tandoori meats, grilled veggies have been perfected in tandoor oven!

Royal India has been serving the Triangle area since 1990 when we launched our restaurant off Capital Blvd in Raleigh. Since then, many new South Asian Indian restaurants have been launched, yet we have retained many of our oldest patrons and constantly welcome new patrons.

Types of Breads available at Roya India

Naan is a leavened, baked flatbread found in the cuisines of Western Asia, South Asia & the Caribbean. Naan in Persian means bread. This soft, spongy leavened bread came to India from Central Asia & became an inseparable part of Mughlai food. It is baked in tandoor (clay oven).

Chapati or roti is an unleavened flatbread originating from the Indian. The word chapat means “slap” or “flat” which is the traditional method of forming rounds of thin dough by slapping the dough between the wetted palms of the hands. The dough is made of whole-wheat flour.

Paratha is the most popular unleavened flatbread native to the Indian subcontinent. Paratha is an amalgamation of the words parat & atta, which means “layers of cooked dough”.  A perfect Paratha is the one which separates into different layers & can be made in several ways.

Kulcha is leavened bread eaten in South Asia. It is a Punjabi variation of Naan & is made with or without stuffing. Kulcha is made from wheat flour, water, a pinch of salt & a leavening agent, mixed together by hand to make very tight dough. As Naan it is also baked in tandoor.

“The bread of happy occasions”, Puri is unleavened and made with whole-wheat dough and is deep fried.  Puffed up like a somewhat deflated ball, the perfect Puri is light golden in color. Its dough is made with whole wheat flour, water, salt, and oil.

What is in Royal India’s Assorted Bread Basket offers a bread basket that allows an opportunity to taste different types of Indian breads. The breads included in the basket are Onion Kulcha, Pudina (mint) Paratha, Simple Naan and Kashmiri Naan, served with or without other dishes.

Pudina Paratha is a fried unleavened bread made from whole wheat dough and topped with freshly cut mint leaves. The Paratha can be enjoyed with any gravy in our menu or can be taken with a side of yogurt and a sip of Lassi beverage or Chai.

Naan, Kashmiri Naan and Onion Kulcha are leavened, baked soft flatbreads, which are baked in our clay oven (tandoor). Naan and Kulcha can be enjoyed with many Indian dishes. Kashmiri Naan is stuffed with mixed dried fruit and nuts and can be enjoyed on its own.
