Kids are kids ! They always want something different. This time my son came saying ” I dont want plain chapati” ! And I really feel guilty to just add some Jam/butter/ghee-sugar and get done with it. So this time I tried something very new for him. This I remember eating it from my Mangalore friends lunch box, I don’t recall the exact recipe though.
To make soft dough
- 1 cup wheat flour
- 1/2 cup curds
- salt to taste
Take a thick bottom pan, dry roast the til seeds. Keep aside To the same pan add little ghee and roast grated coconut for 2 mins. Add sugar and sauté until it dissolves. Add roasted til seeds and mix well. Divide the filling into equal portions and keep aside
Roll out one portion of the dough into a small circle Place the prepared filling in the center of the dough and seal tightly (three-fold it as shown in the picture) Roll out again into a bigger dimension with the help of a little flour Cook the chapathi on a tava (griddle), using a little ghee until both sides are golden brown
