Chapathis (Wholewheat flatbread) are healthy enough using whole wheat flour but do you know you can make it even healthier? Simply fortify it by adding oats, sesame seeds, flaxseeds...
Ingredients ( yields 16, 5 inch chapathis)
3 cups of chapathi (wholewheat) flour
4 tbsps oats
2 tbsps sesame seeds
2 tbsps flaxseed
2 pinches salt
3 tbsps olive oil
1.5 (+/-)cups Whey water/Skim milk
Mix all the dry ingredients first in a medium sized bowl.
Add in the olive oil and then the skim milk. I have discovered that if you use whey water ( ie the water that remains after you make milk cheese at home), the chapathis turn out incredibly soft. Start kneading either in your mixer or by hand. Once you obtain a nice dough, leave it aside for two hours.
Roll pieces of dough into round flatbreads and roast on pan with minimal canola or olive oil. Serve with any curry or can be devoured on its own with honey!
