Cabbage Chapati

Cabbage Chapati doesn't sound that much of a pizza in an American ear, it sounds like the usual food from India. But Chapati could be an interesting choice to make your usual pie interesting! Featured in Chef and Her Kitchen is this cabbage chapati recipe. Just use this cabbage chapati as your crust or eat it as it is and experience pizza differently!

2 cups Wheat flour
1/4 cup Besan(Chickpea flour)
3/4 cup finely chopped or shredded Cabbage
1/4 cup finely chopped Onions
1/4 cup finely chopped Coriander
4-5 Green chillies,finely chopped
1/2 tsp Ginger-Garlic paste or 1/2 tsp grated Ginger
2 tbsp Sesame seeds
1 tsp Coriander-Cumin powder
1/2 tsp Amchur powder
1/4 tsp Garam masala (optional,I did not add)
2 tbsp Curd
2 tsp Oil
Salt to taste
Oil for frying parathas

  1. Finely chop or grate the cabbage and drop it in a bowl.
  2. Add finely chopped onion,chopped green chillies and coriander, all the masala powders, salt and sesame seeds to the chopped/grated cabbage and mix well.
  3. Add chickpea flour and wheat flour and now mix again.
  4. Add curds,oil and add little water to the dough and knead into a smooth and pliable dough.Take care that the dough should not be very sticky,it should be bit stiff while kneading so that it would become little soft when we start rolling.Leave it aside for 10-15 mins.Do not leave the dough for longer time as the cabbage leaves water.
  5. Take a big lemon sized ball and roll into a thin paratha(as thick as chapati or slightly thicker than chapati) and fry it on tawa on both sides applying either oil or ghee over it and roast until you see the brown specs on both sides.
