A Little Bit About This Chapati Wrap Recipe
The last recipe I posted was by my mum and you guys seemed to really enjoy it so after seeing the positive feedback she decided to send another healthy, easy and filling recipe that you can make. So this one involves a chapati which if you didn’t know is an Indian flatbread. My mum is Indian and likes to make Indian food or fusion Indo-Kenyan food a lot. My parents are vegetarian and eat quite healthy (way healthier than me lol!) so she likes recipes that have a lot of different vegetables and don’t have too much oil/fried stuff. Anyway I hope you enjoy this recipe!
2 cabbage leaves
1 green capsicum
1/2 yellow capsicum
1/2 red capsicum
1/2 a small beetroot
1/2 tbs of minced/chopped ginger
1/2 tbs of minced/chopped garlic
Instructions For The Vegetables
- Take the cabbage, carrot, capsicums, onion and beetroot and cut them julienne style.
- Add a bit of oil to your pan and stir fry the beetroot first as it takes the longest to cook.
- Once the beetroot is well cooked add the other vegetables and the ginger and garlic and stir fry them for a few minutes until they are cooked too.
- Add salt and paprika to the mixture according to your preference.
Tip: Use more paprika if you like spicy food and less if you prefer more mild flavours.
Instructions For The Chapati
- Mix together one cup of plain flour, one cup of wheat flour, 1/2 tsp of salt and 1 tbsp of oil.
- Add water to the mixture and knead the dough till it looks like the image below.
- Leave the dough aside for about 20 minutes.
- Make the dough into small pieces and then roll each piece into a smooth ball.
- Roll each dough ball into a round chapati like the image below and cook it on a pan with a bit of oil (or ghee if you’re not vegan) till it’s golden brown.
6. Once the chapati’s are cooked you can add some chutney on it or leave it plain according to your preference.
7. Add the vegetables to the middle of the chapati and roll it similarly to the way you would make a regular wrap as shown below.
Tip: Use a spicy chutney if you like spicy food or a mild one if you prefer to avoid spicy food. You can also add ketchup if you don’t have any chutney in the house.
Have you ever had a chapati wrap? If not are you going to try making one? Do you like fusion food? Are you a fan of spicy food or do you prefer mild food? Do you eat relatively healthy or do you need some junk in your life? Let me know in the comments below!
