Being a kid and eating vegetables don’t normally work together :). As a child I believed in it and now my kids think so too… My mom always tried different ways to incorporate veggies into my meals. On busy nights my mom used to make this quick, nutritious dinner by adding in all grated veggies into the chapathi dough with some spices for taste. This dish needs no curry for the side, can be served with ghee, achaar or thick dahi(yogurt). Vegetable chapathi is now a favorite for my kids. They love it when a lil ghee is smeared on the chapathi, rolled and served.
carrot 2 grated
cabbage grated ½ cup
onion 1 small, finely chopped
spinach 1 cup, finely chopped
wheat flour 3 – 3 ½ cups
oil 4 tsp
salt 1 tsp
garam masala ½ tsp
jeera powder ½ tsp
chaat masala ½ tsp
red chilly powder ¾ tsp
water as needed
oil ½ cup
Mix all the ingredients for the dough with ½ cup of water to start with. As you continue to mix add lil water at a time, as the veggies will make the dough very moist as they rest.
Make a stiff dough and set aside for 10 mins.
Divide the dough into lemon sized balls.
Take each ball on a lightly floured surface and with the help of a rolling pin flatten the dough as much as possible.
Note: Dough cannot be rolled very thin as there are grated veggies in the dough.Also dust as much flour as needed while flattening the dough with rolling pin.
Heat a nonstick/cast iron pan, heat the chapathi well on both sides with a drizzle of oil.
Serve hot with ghee(clarified butter), achar (pickle) or curds on the side.
