Hindu covering Indian bread right away (5)

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'hindu covering' is the definition.
'dhoti' can be an answer for 'covering' (dhoti is a kind of covering). I'm unsure of the 'hindu' bit.

'indian bread right away' is the wordplay.
'indian' becomes 'dh' (I can't justify this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).
'bread' becomes 'roti' (roti is a type of bread).
'right' becomes 'R' (common abbreviation).
'away' is a deletion indicator.
'roti' with 'r' taken out is 'oti'.

(Other definitions for dhoti that I've seen before include "article of clothing", "Lean over; end of loaf", "Skimpy item of clothing", "Loin cloth", "Indian loincloth".)
