A Creamy Chapati Curry

image

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!
