The Chapati Platter Recipes

Chapati or indian flat bread made from wheat is a very important part of meal in every Maharashtrian household. Chapatis are made using a soft dough comprising of atta flour (wheat flour), salt and water. It is made almost daily.

As they are made daily, many times there are chapati leftovers so this post is about the variety of dishes made from these leftovers. These all recipes were made by my Mother in Law who is visiting us now.

Here is my favorite recipe of Chapati which is shared by my mom.

Here is some interesting fact about history of Chapati

The word chapat (Hindi:चपत, chapat) means “to slap”, which describes the traditional method of forming rounds of thin dough by slapping the dough between the wetted palms of the hands. With each slap, the round of dough is rotated. Chapati is noted in the 16th-century document Ain-i-Akbari by Abu’l-Fazl ibn Mubarak, vizier of Mughal Emperor Akbar
