Tricolor Chapati

I was just bored of regular of making regular chapatis. And luckily came across this different recipe and tried it out. It looks colourful, tastes good and serves healthy too. I used carrots for the orange color, coriander and mint leaves for the green color. You can try other veggies like beetroot, broccoli etc., for different colors.


Chapati flour - 3 cups
carrots -2 (steam and grind to a thick paste)
Coriander and mint leaves - 1 cup (grind with little water to a smooth and thick paste)


1. Add water and salt to 1st cup of flour and make a soft chapati dough. This is the usual brown dough

2. Add grinded carrot paste and salt to 2nd cup of flour and make a soft chapati dough. Add water if needed. You'll get a orange dough

3. Add grinded coriander and mint paste and salt to 3rd cup of flour and make a soft chapati dough. Add water if needed. This serves for the green dough

4. Flatten each dough separately using hand or rolling pin to the size of a roti. Arrange the flattened doughs one on top of other ie., keep brown down on top of it keep orange and then green.

5. Now roll it together cylindrically and cut to the size of a chapati ball using knife. Don't make the ball as this blends the color and you maynot be able to the unique colors

6. Take each piece and roll the colorful chapati and cook over tawa as usual

7. Colorful Chapatis are ready for serving
