A Creamy Chapati Curry


Lunchtime yesterday was about using up food that I already had ready to eat! My husband discovered some chapatis and fancied them hot. I thought to curry them up in a creamy yoghurt sauce laced with garlic and chilli. I have watched my Mum make this wonderful dish when it was just me and her for lunch, when I lived at home. We both love tangy yoghurt and this spicy sour sensation really is something very enjoyable!

A light yellow silky sauce to accompany and soak into the pre cooked chapatis! A definite staple in our home when we have left over chapatis!



4 pre cooked chapatis/tortillas torn into bite size pieces
4 tbsp mild natural yoghurt/greek yoghurt
½ cup water/100 ml water
1 large garlic clove crushed
¼ tsp mustard seeds
¼ tsp cumin seeds
pinch of dried red chilli seeds
⅓ tsp garam masala
⅓ tsp turmeric
½ tsp coriander & cumin powder
⅓ tsp chilli powder
⅓ tsp salt or to taste
Fresh coriander to garnish


• Whisk the yoghurt and water together

• Heat the oil in a medium non-stick saucepan, add the chilli, mustard and cumin seeds along with the crushed garlic


• Once the seeds start to pop slowly add the yoghurt mixture, stir in the seasoning and spices and whisk on a low heat, throw in the chapati/tortilla and whisk




• Keep on a low simmer and stir to avoid separation of yoghurt. Do not boil just let the sauce warm through and serve with a sprinkling of fresh coriander
