There are so many kinds that this precludes a poll.

Bread of all kinds. It is hard to choose but Sourdough bread is my favorite. We had a bread topic with wonderful pics of bread somewhere.

EDIT: Rye is good. I never met a bread I didn't like. :) @hasanhh

Plain chapati. Give me a fresh, plain chapati with daal or saalan and leave me alone.

Now you're talking!Two years ago you wanted plain old sliced bread. :)

Do you like chapatis because they are fried in oil? I do like my breads with olive oil or butter.

I hate it. The word "sour" is not what I want to associate with bread.

Unleavened bread (without yeast) makes my relative's stomach hurt. I do like tortillas and all kinds of breads, especially lavash, taftoon, sangak, and barbari.

Chapatis (also called roti and phulka) are baked on a flat skillet. No oil is used in the baking or in the preparation of dough.

When chapatis are fried in oil they are called parathas.

I love paratha but I rarely eat it because of the oil. It add pounds on me if I consume it regularly :(

I make a version of parathas. :)

So if I just leave off the last step, it's chapatis?

There are variations between the two types and an informal nomenclature to go with it depending on the recipe but yes, generally speaking, if you don't use any oil, it's a chapati!
