Chapatti (rotli / roti)

Saturday, November 15th, 2008

This flatbread is a staple food for all Indian’s and is very similar to tortillas. They are usually served with cooked dahl (Lentil soup) or a vegetable curry and pieces of the chapatti are used to wrap around and pick up a bite of the curry. It is not only good to go with curries but you can also use it to make lots of other snacks.¬† I sometimes use them to make instant pancakes for my son, just put some chocolate spread or honey and chop some fruit, arrange to make a face and serve.¬† Can’t go wrong as he looks at it as a treat and I am happy that he is eating wholemeal & fruit. As with all breads this is very simple to make, ‘practice makes perfect’ is my motto on it, especially when rolling¬† out the dough to form an even round shape.
