Roasted Red Bell Pepper Chapatis

image

Peppers give immense flavour in cooking especially when it’s roasted! Packed with vitamin C, it’s great for when you have a cold. With both my little ones sniffling away and always comforted with a rolled up chapati in their hands when playing. I thought why not introduce the pepper to the chapati?

I was sooo happy with the result and so were they. A soft orange chapati with strong notes of pepper and coriander. I sent a couple for my Mum to try and she loved them. She wants the recipe! So this one is for you my dearest!

INGREDIENTS

1 red bell pepper
2 garlic cloves
Handful fresh coriander
¾ tsp salt or to taste
1 tsp coriander & cumin powder
½ tsp turmeric powder
½ tsp garam masala
250g chapati flour
1 tbsp sunflower oil
Boiling water to bind
Extra flour for rolling
Butter

METHOD

• Preheat the oven to 180°c, pierce the pepper and place on a baking tray. Roast for 20 minutes or until the skin is shrivelled and the pepper soft. Set aside to cool down

• Remove the stalk and seeds, place roasted pepper in the food processor with the garlic, coriander and all the spices and seasoning. Blend to a paste

• Change the blade tool to a dough hook or plastic bread blade, add the flour and oil. Whizz to combine the flour with the pepper paste, once mixed add a little boiling water to bind the flour into a ball of dough

• Meanwhile heat a non stick frying pan on a slow to medium heat. Take a tablespoon amount of dough and form into a ball, flatten and on a clean floured surface roll into a round of approximately 10cm

You will have to flour the chapati as you roll to avoid sticking

• To cook, place the chapati into the heated frying pan, once it shows up a few bubbles turn around carefully with a spatula

Wait again for a minute or so and turn over again. When both sides of the chapati is cooked brown spots will appear

Take out of the pan and set aside on a plate. Spread a little butter onto the chapati

Repeat for the rest of the dough

Either to be eaten alone or with a curry of your choice

  1. Hey Dimple, once again a yummy looking recipe. We ate chipatis almost every night when living in India. I haven’t had much success making them in Brazil though and was wondering if you have any suggestions concerning flour. I can’t get atta here. Do you know what would be a good substitute, or how I could possible make my own atta?
    Blessings =)

  2. That looks very delicious and satisfying! It reminds me of our flour tortillas which are made with all-purpose flour. Chapati flour must be a different type?
    What a combination of flavors you have there!
