Coriander Masala Chappathi

Coriander leaves are also known as cilantro, the fresh leaves are an essential ingredient in many South Asian foods..All parts of the plant are edible, but the fresh leaves and the dried seeds are the most commonly used in cooking. Coriander has been used as a folk medicine for the relief of anxiety and insomnia in Iranian folk medicine..Coriander leaves r rich in Vitamin C.. i tried chappathis using those excellent vitamined leaves..they r greenish as well as tasty..


2cups Wheat flour
Salt
2tsp Ghee
Maida for dusting

To Grind:
1cup Coriander leaves
1/4cup Mint leaves
1no Green chilly
1tsp Ginger pieces
6nos Garlic pods
1/4cup Curd

Grind everything from list 'To Grind' finely as in picture..Take a large bowl add the wheat flour,salt n ghee also add the grounded paste..knead everything as soft dough..keep aside for half an hour..

Make 10 to 12 balls from the dough..dust them with maida flour n roll them as chappathis..heat a tawa n cook them both sides until they get well cooked with a teaspoon of oil r ghee...

Serve them hot with any choice of side dish...
