Multigrain Chapathi – Chapathi Recipes

image_pdfimage_print

              Multigrain means it includes several types of grains. In this recipe, I used multigrain cereal which has oats, barley, wheat and rye. This is a healthy alternative to regular wheat chapathi, having once or twice a week in diet is good for health. This can be served with any raita or dal.




   Ingredients

       1 Cup of Whole Wheat Flour
       1/2 Cup of Multigrain Cereal, roasted and powdered
       1 Tbsp of Oil
       1 Cup of Warm Water
       Salt as needed


  Method

  • In a pan, dry roast the cereal until it turn color and aromatic. Cool it for 5-10mins and then grind it to a fine powder.
  • In a wide bowl, add wheat flour, multigrain cereal powder, salt, oil and warm water. Mix well. Knead the dough with your hand. Keep it aside for 15-30 mins.
  • Heat a tawa or chapathi pan. Meanwhile make a equally sized balls out of the dough and roll it into a circular thin chapathi.
  • Carefully place the chapathi on the heated pan. You will see tiny bubbles rises on the surface of roti.
  • Now it’s time to flip the chapathi with a spatula. Once first flip is done, apply oil or ghee on the upper surface and spread all over the chapathi.
  • Flip again in 30 secs and apply some oil. Press chapathi gently with a spatula and cook till brown spots appear on both the sides of the roti.
  • Chapathi is done when both sides are brown and crispy. Remove it from pan and place it in serving dish.
  • Repeat the same process with each ball of dough.
  • Hot multigrain chapathi is ready to serve.

  Tips

  • Serve with any dal or onion raita.
  • Adding warm water to flour makes chapathi soft.
  • You can add butter instead of oil.
  • You can also add vegetables of your choice, to make veggie multigrain chapathi.

  Health Benefits of Multigrain Chapathi

  • Multigrain foods will be high in complex carbohydrates and protein. Complex carbs are great for energy production, and this can help with exercise and losing weight.
  • The levels of protein will aid the body in tissue repair and production of antibodies that will help fight sickness or infection.
  • In addition, they will contain nutrients, fiber and essential minerals like magnesium, copper and iron. Multigrains that contain whole grains will be filled with essential fatty acids, B-vitamins, starch and fiber. Magnesium will help build strong bones and teeth. It will also help with metabolism. Fiber is great in helping the body stay regular and maintaining a healthy colon. 

 Adding Multigrains to a Diet

  • Multigrains can be added to any meal throughout the day. 
  • At breakfast you could start with a multigrain oatmeal with some blueberries mixed in or any fruits
  • At lunch you could have a peanut butter and strawberry jam on two slices of multigrain bread and then
