That's the culture difference:)


For your info, in India, we do not have (atleast not that I know of) electric stoves and that is why Indians are used to gas stoves (not the gas sold in gas stores here)!



I know that gas stoves are used in India.. :)

I meant why is it difficult for a person to cook on a gas vs electric stove?
The only thing I that I find an advantage in a gas stove is that you can enable your roti to rise directly by placing it into the gas flame.. Right??

I appreciate all the responses and Thanks to all of you .

Pardon my ignorance ... but whats an iron grill ? :( . I am just 20 days old in Canada and adapting myself .

Is iron grill the kind of iron mesh on which we can roast bread on fire ??

I plan to visit a couple of departmental stores , to check this out and hope there won't be any problems .

Thanks once again (for the advise on usage of the oven also )

Another difference is that on a gas stove the tava heats faster than on an electric stove. It does make a difference when cooking

On gas stoves temp control is easierto swtish from high flame to low and vice versa unlike on electric stove where it takes longer to heat up once heated it takes long time to cool down to lower temp.

I find that food tastes different (in my opinion, better) cooked on a gas stove than compared to an electric stove...I don't know, maybe I'm just being biased as it's what I'm used to from back home in England, where electric stoves were all the rage...for about 5 mins!!

I also use a small cloth to help my roti rise.

No doubt. Gas cooked does taste better. I used only for few months in N. America the electric stove. My first home saw the electric stove yanked out and put on the curb.

Slightly, off-topic..

Has anybody seen ready made bajra and jowar rotis in the market? If yes, can you please indicate the brand and where it is available in the GTA?

Cheers
