Potato Chapathis/Parathas

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Honeybeee

These are unleavened Indian Breads. When cooked with oil they are called 'parathas' and when without oil, they are referred to as 'chapathis'. Have them with any curry and taste best when eaten hot - straight from the fire and onto your plate!

A simple recipe that comes together fast- a plus in my book. The subtle flavor of the potato was also very nice. Served them with dal, rice, and a curry of green pepper/chickpeas/potatoes. Thank you, Honeybeee.
