If you have been following me for a while, you know I am all about fun, colourful, delicious food, and the more vegetables I can put in, the better.
I like my chapati in all colours and flavours, so long as it is healthy (natural) and delightful to my taste buds.
These chapatis are like aloo paratha, but instead of a mashed potato filling, I made one with spicy steamed ripe plantain.
These delicious and filling chapati are a perfect lunchbox or tea time snack, or even with a delicious stew.
Let’s get started:
You will need 1-2 yellow ripe plantain. Boil or steam the plantain with one teaspoon of mixed spices and some salt and pepper.
Move on to the chapati dough…
I like adding besan flour to my chapati, it makes them softer, adds a yellow tinge and some flavour too.
Now to make the chapati…
Divide your chapati dough into half, take one half and roll out into a large circle.
Once done, heat up your chapati pan on medium heat, not too hot.
You can either let them cook through and brush with oil after you remove from heat, or add the oil to the pan, like normal chapati.
You can have them with a stew or curry, or for tea. Or just plain on it’s own. The kids loved them plain, I guess cause of the sweetness of the plantain which blends well with the savory spice and fried bread flavour of the chapati.
