Spicy Chapati...

This Spicy Chapati/Indian flat bread is done using carrots and ridge gourd peel chutney. You really feel bore to eat chapatis some time. You feel like just giving some alter or change the normal chapati into spicy by adding some or the other ingredients like, garam masala, chilly powder, chat masala etc etc.
Here I have used chutney (which was prepared in the after noon). I mixed about one cup of chutney to the wheat flour and added some spices and prepared the dough.
Its simple and Easy just yummy and these Spicy Chutney chapatis are superb to eat for dinner or even as snack. Be creative and stuff this chapatis with raw veggies and have has a Chapati roll too. (Just an idea for you ).
Strictly do not use any stale or spoiled chutney. It leads to ill health and you might get food poisoning. 
Lets see the recipe now :

Things Needed :

Wheat flour : 2 to 3 cups
Ridge gourd & carrot chutney : 1 Cup
Jeera/ Cumin Seeds : 1 Teaspoon
Garam Masala Powder : 1/2 Teaspoon
Red chilly Powder : 1/2 Teaspoon
Salt : Required
Ghee / Oil : 2 to 3 Tablespoons

Method :

1. Take a big bowl. Put wheat flour, chutney, jeera, 1 tablespoon oil, garam masala powder, red chilly powder and salt.
2. Mix all the ingredients nicely and add required water and prepare chapati dough. 
3. Divide the dough into small portion. (a small ball size).
4.Keep 2 to 3 tablespoons of dry wheat flour in separate bowl.
5. Dip a small ball size chapati dough and roll it as chapati.
6. Keep a pan on the fire and heat. Put the rolled chapati and cook on both sides. Sprinkle oil both sides.

7. Remove from the pan and serve hot spicy chapati with a bowl of curd/yogurt.
8. Repeat the same with remaining dough and prepare chapatis. Serve hot and spicy chapatis with a cup of curd/yogurt and any curry you have prepared.


You can add spices according to your taste. It can be served with any curry you have prepared. Adding little ghee while serving adds to the taste. Spicy chapatis can be served with tomato ketch up or any type of chutney also. Do not use any spoiled or stale chutney. It might upset your health. I have used the chutney which is prepared for lunch and kept the remaining in the fridge just after lunch. The very evening (that day it self), these chapatis are tried.
Time : 30 Minutes
Serves : 3 to 4
