The state of Uttar Pradesh is historically acclaimed. Rich in culture and tradition, it is known for its fine arts, literature and is a site for many world heritage. The world famous Taj Mahal, prasied as the epitome of love in numerous poems and arts is situated in this state. This culturally prosperous region is also known for its lip smacking cuisine - The Mughalai cuisine. This very word is almost transposed with Indian cuisine outside India. To most non-Indians, Naan, Kulcha, Koftas are the much popular food of India and all these comes from the great Mughals. Apart from the Mughalai food, Awadhi cuisine is also one of the popular cuisine in Uttar Pradesh. This state has churned out so many delectable recipes that are rich in flavour, taste and texture.
This recipe is inspired from the Mughals. Rotis made with butter and seasoned with freshly ground black pepper. Unlike the regular rotis, these appear to be flaky, buttery and very soft. The essence of the roti is the addition of pepper that gives a warm flavour. Pair it with any gravy or a salad and enjoy.
Recipe adapted from Tarla Dalal.

I know of chapati dough with oil mixed in but have never used butter. I am sure it makes them soft as yours look in the pictures.
