"Flatbreads have been enjoyed across different cultures for centuries, with each region adding its own distinct flavours and techniques to this culinary creation. While determining the absolute best flatbread would be an impossible task for anyone, we've turned to mathematics and counted your votes - as we always do," read the caption to the post.
Indian flatbreads clearly made a mark in the list of best-rated flatbreads by Taste Atlas. Among the top five, two entries were Indian. Butter garlic naan was on the number two spot while naan collectively won the fifth spot in the list. Meanwhile, the best-rated flatbread on number one was Roti Canai, a Malaysian crispy bread with multiple layers that are also believed to be of Indian origin. Among the next few rankings were breads like paratha, Amritsari kulcha and the simple roti. Aloo paratha, roomali roti, Kashmiri naan and aloo naan also found a mention in the top 50. Meanwhile, among international breads, there was lavash, pita bread, Focaccia and tortilla among the popular ones.
