Tomato Chapathi

My chitti makes tomato poori. She infact advised me to make these kind of pooris for my girls. I tried this tomato Chapathi very long back and managed to find time to post this recipe. Here goes the recipe.

  1. wheat flour - 3 cups
  2. salt to taste
  3. sesame oil -  2tsp
  4. Tomato - 2 Medium sized
  5. Green chillies - 2 (acc to taste)
  6. omam/ajwain - a pinch
First boil the 1/2 cup water. Put the two tomatoes in it and let it boil for few minutes. Let it cool and peel the skin.  Now take those tomatoes, green chillies and salt and grind it into a fine paste without adding water. The paste will be watery by itself. Now take the wheat flour in a wide bowl, add the tomato paste, omam and mix everything well and knead it into a fine dough.  Sprinkle water if necessary. Make lemon sized balls and spread it into 8 or 9" diameter circle.  Cook it in a hot tawa. Enjoy it with a dallop of yogurt or any of your favorite side dish.
