Quinoa Chapathis

Quinoa Chapathis
Healthy Combo of Quinoa and Wheat

Yes, you heard right! I recently made chapathis with quinoa that turned out so delicious. Nobody could make out that I added quinoa to the regular chapathis. This is another way to incorporate quinoa in our daily recipes. Even if the kids don’t like quinoa for its texture or taste, they would definitely like these chapathis as they won’t even know that there is quinoa in the chapathi. If we really want our kids/family to eat healthy stuff like quinoa, we should do such tricks, do you agree?

OK then, read on to know how I made these healthy chapathis in a jiffy. 

Here is the recipe:
Quinoa Chapathis

Ingredients: (Makes 4 Chapathis)
  1. Take wheat flour + quinoa together in a wide bowl. Add salt as required.
  2. Make a small well at the center and pour little amount of water and mix well with hands. 
  3. Knead well and pour some more water as needed until the contents attain the form of soft dough. Be careful not to add too much water as there is a chance that the dough becomes like a dosa batter. :)
  4. Keep this dough covered for at least 30 minutes.
  5. Later, take equal portions of the dough and form into balls. Roll these balls into thin chapathis.
  6. Heat a non-stick pan and place a rolled chapathi on the hot tawa. Allow it to cook for some time.
  7. When chapathi seems to show soft bubbles, flip over and spray the non-stick spray on the chapathi.
  8. Let it cook and flip it over again and spray again. Allow the chapathi to cook well on both sides until brown spots appear on both sides.
  9. Remove the chapathi from pan and place on a plate. Repeat the same process with remaining dough.
  10. Enjoy with desired curry/pickle/raita.
  11. Yummy and healthy!!
