Masala chappathi . These chappathi’s are soft and moist with masala added to them . Can be had as it is without any accomplishment . Best served hot or at room temperature . Very handy to be taken along while travelling . My first masala chappathi I had was at a shop in Coimbatore called confectionary ( D.B road , R.S Puram ) . They have packets of these home made masala chappathi’s in the front counter of their shop . On my every visit to the shop , I never miss out to pick up masala chappathi’s . By the time I reach home the chappathi’s would have settled down in all our ( kids and myself ) tummy’s . My hubby’s new love towards chappathi’s has made me experiment to make more varieties . This recipe is just an assumption of the masala chappathi’s I had in confectionary . To my surprise it did work out well . I mean , I have come close to 80 % of confectionary masala chappathi’s .¬† Worth giving a try recipe which might add to your daily menu as a staple at home .
