Tomato Chappati~ Blog hop wednesday 11th Jan 2012

This is my entry for Blog Hop Wednesday started by Radhika of Tickling Palates. Its a beautiful concept where not only do you get to make new  blogger friends, cook from their blogs but in return they visit your blog and try out your recipes too.

If you are interested in  joining Blog Hop Wednesday here is how it works:

"The plot behind this attempt is to form 2 groups and make pairs with a blogger who will be your partner for that particular month. This happens every 2nd wednesday of the month. You will then go through your partner’s blog, select, choose, cook, click and post the recipe in your blog on Wednesday and vice versa. The following month you will have a new partner. This way not only you tend to your blog at intervals but also learn some new recipes along the way and get to know a lot of bloggers and make friends."

This recipe is  from Hema's Blog. Looking through her blog there were many recipes that I had never tried before, but finally I settled  for the tomato chappati recipe you can find here.
I had to make a few basic changes as I did not have any tomato gojju and as I had never prepared it before  so I improvised.

Healthy delicious chapattis  with a subtle flavour of tomatoes.


250 grams whole Wheat flour
2 tablespoons sunflower  oil
4 tablespoons oil for cooking the chappatis
1 teaspoon salt
Water to make Chappati dough
6 tablespoons passata (blended sieved tomatoes)
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/2 teaspoon chilli powder


1. In a bowl add the flour, salt, chilli powder, turmeric powder, 2 tablespoons oil and mix well.
2. Add the passata and start to mix it into the flour, add water if required to form a soft pliable dough.Cover and leave to rest for 30 minutes.
3.Divide the dough into walnut sized balls and using a little dry flour roll out a thin chappati approximately 6 inches in diameter.
4. Heat a frying pan and place the chappati on it, after a minute flip it over and brush the top side lightly with some oil. Flip the chappati over so oiled side is on the bottom.
5. Brush lightly the top side and once again flip it to cook this side too.Remove from pan and place in a foil wrap to keep warm.
6. Repeat for remaining dough.
Serve tomato chappati with any curry or pickle of choice.
