Chapatti Recipes deja vu

As kids one of our most regular and staple food involved chapatti.

It is a wonderful food that can be consumed in a variety of ways and i am sure many people will at some part of time would have had invented their own chapatti dish over time. Chapathi was king when i was a kid , we had it in all sort of combinations possible. These chapatti combinations were at times invented due to pure laziness , sometimes inventive behavior and sometimes due to lack of time. But offcourse it was always mum who made them

What is chapatti ?

chapatti indian bread roti

Chapatti is a favorite bread throughout India. Chapatis are one of the most common forms in which wheat, the staple of northern South Asia, is consumed. Chapati is a form of roti (bread). The words are often used interchangeably. While roti refers to any flat unleavened bread, chapati is a roti made of whole-wheat flour and cooked on a tava (flat skillet).

Here are my top chapatti combinations that i enjoyed over time

Chapatti with Jam

This needs no instructions , just ladle some jam over chapatti and start munching

Chapathi with achar ( mango achar, Lime pickle achar , chundha)

Just have chapatti with pickle of your choice for a quick snack ,yummmy

Chapatti with tea

Roll a chapatti and dip it in your cup of tea and munch away

Chapatti with Ghee

Chapatti with ghee on it and maybe a little chat masala if you dare.

Chapathi with butter

Pick the chapatti pieces and sprinkle sugar over your dollop of butter in your plate and pick into the butter with the chappati

Most of these dishes served as a quick meal because at most times there was always a container full of chapattis at home.For those new to the chapatti combination recipes , you could also in some instances substitute chapatti with either naan or then roti. but it might not taste the same.

Indian food uses spices and herbs that not just give it its distinctive taste and flavor but are also great for your health. Turmeric has been linked to cancer-prevention, ginger for coughs and colds and so on... Spices supply calcium, iron, vitamin B/C, carotene and other antioxidants.

So enjoy Indian food while the ingredients help your system!
