Fresh Roti in Irving or Plano Area?

I have family visiting from India, and they have roti's every night for dinner. I've been buying them every 2 days from the nearest Indian Grocery ($4.29 for 8 roti's). They will be here for one month, and I was wondering if anyone knew of a better way to get fresh roti's for less money? (ie. Know of anyone who makes them and sells them from their house)

    Well Lucy,

    Can you pin down a location....Irving and Plano aren't very close to each other.

    Irving - I would try Taj Chaat House on Rochelle and MacArthur....there is also a fairly new Indian grocery store in the same parking lot and I believe they might have a bakery.

    Indian Food & Grocery
    425, W Airport Fwy Ste 103
    Irving, TX 75062
    Phone : 972-594-1999

    Indian Supermarket - I belive this is the one in the same shopping center as Taj Chaat House
    9400 N. Macarthur Blvd # 114
    Irving, TX 75063
    Phone : 972-444-0020

    Mela Indian Grocers & Video
    5437 N. MacArthur Blvd.
    Irving, TX 75038
    Phone : (972) 518-1888

    Bharat Bazaar
    2810 N Oconnor Blvd
    Irving, TX 75062
    Phone : 972-570-8612

    I would give all of these a call before I go and ask if they have fresh rotis.

    If you are looking for rotis at a restaurant in Plano I am almost positive Taste of the Islands (Spring Creek & Alma) has them - http://www.tasteoftheislands.net/
    They are actually Caribbean food (Guyana natives).

    Hopefully this will get you started and some Planonians or is it Planoites ?? will chime in for some places in Plano

      I work in Plano, but live in Irving, so I'm open to both locations.

        Lucy have you tried Hotbreads in Irving on MacArthur....I know they have breads....maybe you can convince them to start making rotis. I am sure there is a demand in the area as I used to live at Hidden Ridge & MacArthur. If they can make thin skin like ones then we would be set for doubles!!

        I know exactly what you are looking for and I know there has to be somone out there making them. There was a lady and her daughter at T'afia selling her chutneys, rotis, naans and raitas in Houston. Perhpas make a plea to Radio Salaam Namaste 104.9...yes I listen frequently and no I don't understand. Let me know what you find out from that....it is worth a shot!!!

          Taste of the Islands in Plano is the best fresh roti in town. They sell off to many Indian markets locally. If yuh don't have yuh own tawa, get yuh roti at Taste of the Islands. But it's so easy and cheap to make -- and there's nothing better than your own hot fresh ones!
