Ragi Chappathi Rolls with Spicy Potato Masala/Potato Stuffed Fingermillet Chappathi Rolls

Ragi, this grain is very versatile and you can dish out many tremendous dishes with it, i have been using this grain as flour, vermicelli, semolina and as whole. Thank god i get this grain very much easily in Indian stores here in Paris, i can get ragi rava, flour and whole easily in Indian provisional stores. Still ragi vermicelli is not easily available here but i dont forget to carry them or ask my relatives to send a parcel from India. Obviously my pantry is now loaded with varieties of millets,you might have noticed that most of my recent posts are with millets, yes am cooking with them atleast thrice a week and i couldnt stop myself to create different dishes with these incredible grains,one of my recent addiction. Ragi chappathi is one among the rotis i make quite often for our dinner, if there is some leftover i'll pack them carefully and freeze it for further use. Last time when i made ragi chappathis, i freezed a couple of them to make rolls with paneer or potato masala for my kids snack as they love chappathis very much at anytime of the day.

A simple ragi chappathi when stuffed with potato masala makes an excellent,filling evening snacks and personally i felt after having a chappathi roll, none will ask their dinner immediately, yes they are very much satisfying and obviously healthy since this roll goes for both ragi flour and whole wheat flour. If you dont know how to include millets in our diet, just add them in your daily rotis. This is how i usually feed ragi aka fingermillet to my family especially for my kids. For the filling, i went for an easy breezy stuffing with potatoes. Definitely a quick tiffin to make if you have leftover stir fries or leftover rotis at home. You can replace the filling very well with any stir fries you cooked for your lunch or simply with raw vegetables, however my kids liked this potato stuffing very much.This week's theme for blogging marathon is Tiffins and this filling chappathi rolls suits prefectly for the theme.
