Rainbow Chapatis (Indian Bread)

Rainbow Chapatis (Indian Bread)

Try this healthy rainbow chapatis - Recipe contributed by Meenu Kiran.
 
Method:
1. Pressure cook beets for red, carrots for orange, spinach and broccoli for green.
2. Pressure cook all of them seperately in a pressure cooker with beets being last.
3. Add wheat flour to each of them and make a dough.
4. Add salt, ajwain/carom seeds, pepper to the dough. It is not necessary to add water while kneading the dough.
5. Roll them into chapati and stack all three chapatis on each other by spreading a little ghee in between each of the chapatis(this gives flaky texture).
6. Roll them tight, like how we do for pinwheels.
7. Cut the roll into pieces (shown in pic 3) then roll them again into chapatis. Each chapati comes out palm size. A very healthy option for school lunch.
