Calories In Indian Breads

The calories and nutrition in Indian foods like wheat roti, naan, chapatti, parathas depend on the way the foods are cooked. Indian parathas are very high in calories/energy (high calories from fat) as these are fried in ghee or butter whereas tandoori roti is baked in tandoor so these are supposed to be low in calories. But this is not so because after baking they are coated with ghee or butter to improve their taste. However, it is possible to have traditional parantha (Indian paratha recipe) that produces tasty parathas with less fat and keeping the natural nutrition values and low calories.
