Directions

  1. Combine the mashed potatoes, salt, cayenne, turmeric, cilantro, and 3 tablespoons vegetable oil in a bowl and mix well. Add the whole wheat flour a little at a time, kneading the mixture until it forms a stiff but pliable dough. (If the dough becomes too stiff, add a few drops of water.) Transfer the dough to an oiled bowl, turning to coat; cover with plastic and set aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat a nonstick griddle to medium heat.
  3. Divide the dough into lemon-sized portions and roll them out on a lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Fry the chapatis using up to 1 teaspoon of oil for each side. Cook until brown spots have started to form on the bread and the dough is cooked through. Brush with melted butter and serve hot.

Really good, basic recipe. It loses something without pickle (I recommend garlic pickle or mango pickle). I added scallions and a touch of garlic to the original recipe. Just keep adding wate...

I love this easy to follow recipe. I made a few changes to suit my needs., I used all purpose flour instead of wheat, I left out the spices since my mashed potatoes already had some seasoning in...

I liked it overall, thank you!

I had to knead the dough way more than I had anticipated but it came out well. Loved it. The suggestion to serve with butter brushed on the chapati is classic. Thanks for this.

I made this with sweet potatoes. Fantastic!
