Chapati is a common Indian bread made everyday in most Indian houses. It is also spelt and pronounced as chapatti, chapathi. Roti is a general name for any Indian bread in general.
Chapathi is made of whole wheat flour, which makes it healthier as whole wheat flour
is rich in fiber content. A little Soyabean flour is also added
to make it more nutritious.
The shape of a chapathi is generally round(it is mostly round). In the North Karnataka it is also made in a triangle shape. It is of course tasty whatever the shape.
It is best eaten hot but is good after a few hours too. It is a good item to take as lunch to school or office.
It is eaten generally at breakfast, lunch or dinner. That is, it is a part of a main meal.
It is served with vegetable fries, curries, dals or chutneys.
You will need a rolling pin (belan - Latne - Lattanage) and a board (chakla - Polpat - Chapathi mane) for rolling chappatis.You may use your kitchen counter instead of a board but you are going to need a rolling pin.
The iron girdle - skillet - tava is used for cooking chapathies. You may use non stick flat tawa or fry pan if you wish.
