We all would have heard of Chilli Parotta, a tasty and addictive food from Tamilnadu. A similar recipe made with Chapati is this Chilli Chapati. This recipe is made with whole wheat chapatis and hence is much healthier. This dish is hot, spicy, tangy and lip smacking. It is great choice for breakfast or dinner. It can be made with leftover rotis.

This Chilli Chapati is different from the Kothu Chapati that includes eggs and shredded chicken. The crispy chapati pieces tastes so yummy that kids would just gulp it without any fuss. Do try it out.
