You can hardly enjoy Indian night without a warm and soft chapati. But what if you are intolerant to gluten? Traditional chapati, or roti, is not gluten-free, so you would have to leave it on the table. Well, not anymore! Below we will show you how to make a healthy chapati that is gluten-free, and more nutritious than the classic one.
To get rid of the pesky gluten, we have replaced wheat flour with a combination of gram flour, fine cornmeal, and arrowroot starch. This mix is tastier than wheat flour, and has a better ratio of proteins to carbs, meaning that is more nutritious.
There are many variations to chapati recipes, as this soft bread is native not just to the Indian subcontinent, but also the Caribbeans and East Africa.
We have tipped in a little bit of turmeric to give it a lush yellow colour, but you may also use herbs like coriander, grated radish, garlic powder, or pepper. In fact, once you get familiar with the recipe, you should just go wild and use your favourite ingredients!
Overall, one of our gluten-free chapatis has 200 calories and comes with 6 grams of proteins. It's so flavourful that you can even have it on its own, or pair it with your favourite chutneys and curries. Oh, and it's ready in only 20 minutes! Ready for this? Let's go!
