Wheat - Rava Spicy Chapati

Wheat - Rava Spicy Chapati is good to have for breakfast /lunch or dinner. It is filled with spices and you can have them with any type of chutney/curry/curd.

I have used Chiroti rava/Thin variety of semolina, wheat flour, curd and some spices to give a spicy taste.
Let us see the recipe now :

Things Needed :

Wheat flour : 2 Cups
Chiroti Rava : 2 Tablespoons
Curd : 2 Tablespoons
Jeera : 1/2 Teaspoon
Garam Masala : 1/2 Teaspoon
Red chilly powder : 1/4 Teaspoon
Turmeric powder : 1/4 Teaspoon
Salt : As required
Water : As required
Oil : 3 to 4 Tablespoons
Ghee : 1 Tablespoon
Coriander Leaves : 2 to 3 Tablespoon

Method :

1. Wash and cut coriander leaves and keep it aside.
2. Take a big bowl and put wheat flour, chiroti rava/thin semolina, turmeric powder, chilly powder, garam masala powder and jeera.
3. Add curd and salt. Add cut coriander leaves. Add ghee and mix it well.
4. Add required water and prepare chapati dough. (Leave it for 5 minutes).

5. Divide the dough into small portions. Keep one cup of dry wheat flour aside.
6. Take a small size of the dough and dip in dry flour.

7. Roll it as chapati and keep it aside.
8. Keep a tava on the fire and heat. Put rolled chapati on the tava. Sprinkle some oil on the top and cook on medium flame.
9. Turn the other side and cook for 30 seconds.
10. Hot " Wheat - Rava Spicy Chapati " is ready to serve.
11. Repeat the same and prepare remaining chapatis.
 12. Serve with your choice of curry.

Note :

Use of ghee is optional. You can use any cooking oil instead of ghee. (Ghee adds to the softness of chapati). Adding any other spice is optional. Adding more curd is optional. You can add any other edible leaves to the dough. (Example : dil leaves, palak leaves, methi leaves etc). Taste differ.
Time : 30 Minutes.
Serves : 2 to 3 .
