Cheese and long beans Small chapatis.

Cheese thats younger generations favourite now. What ever it is you just spread OR put some cheese and it is in more demand.

Eating cheese in certain amount is good. It is filled with calcium and is nutritious. I have tried some cheese, filing in chapati and rolled as chapati. It Cheese roll can be eaten as snack or for kids you can pack it their lunch box.
I have seen Mrs. Karuna Moorthy, one of our Srilankan friend used to prepare these type of chapatis in the evening for her kids. Since cheese is my favourite she used to stuff some vegetables and give it to me. I am talking about our good old days we spent in Nigeria, Yola. We used to live near by and used to visit them very often. All old memories are good to cherish and influence you one or the other way.
Coming back to the Cheese stuffed chapatis, I have used cheese, wheat flour, milk and little salt. The other version I tried is, stuffing long beans dry curry to the same type of chapati.
Wheat is mixed with milk and little salt and done the dough. The dough is soft and it turns fluffy taste yummy.
Lets see the recipe now :

Cheese stuffed chapatis.

Things needed :

Wheat flour : 2 Cups
Milk : 1/2 Cup
Salt : A little
Ghee : 1 Teaspoon
Cheese : Slice cheese : 3 to 4 slices
Oil/Ghee : 2 to 3 Tablespoons

Method :
1. Take a big bowl and add wheat flour, a teaspoon of ghee, little salt.
2. Add milk and mix it well and prepare dough. (You can use water if necessary).
3. Cut slice cheese into small pieces.
4. Divide the dough into small portions and roll them as balls.
5. Take a small portion of the dough and roll with chapati roller. ( A little ).
6. Place the cheese pieces and arrange them.
7. Pull all the corners of chapati to the center. Just press and fold it well.
8. Roll slightly and flatten a little.

9.Keep tava /pan on the fire and heat. Put rolled cheese filled chapati on the pan.
10. Sprinkle some oil on the top of chapati and cook on both sides.
11. Serve hot cheese stuffed chapati with some ketch up.
12. Repeat the same with remaining dough and cheese.

Long beans Stuffing also can be done with your remaining dry curry that you have prepared for your lunch.
Place 1 tablespoon of the curry you prepared and fold the chapati and flatten slightly.
Cook them on both sides on medium flame.

Serve with chutney or ketch up. I have tried using long beans dry curry and cheese together. It has turned yum yum yummy.
