Tofu Chapathi/Tofu Roti

Tofu is a soy product, which is high in proteins.  This recipe was shared with me by one of my friend.

Preparation Time - 3 hrs (including the dough to rest)
Cook Time - 10 mins
Serves - 6 chapathis

Measurements & Ingredients:
  • tofu firm - 4.5 oz(130 gms)
  • Whole wheat flour - 1 cup
  • water - 1/2 or <1/2 cup
  • salt - a pinch

Mix the wheat flour and salt. 
To this add the tofu which is crushed.  It is so soft, that it can be crumbled using fingers.  Mix it with the wheat flour well.  Slowly add water in small quantities and start kneading to make it into a soft dough. 

The dough should not be sticky.  If it gets sticky, add a little more flour and knead until you get a nice smooth dough.  Let it rest for 2-3 hrs and the dough is ready to make chapathis.

The difference between these chapathis/roti and the regular chapathi/roti is that these have proteins in them and also the chapathis will be softer than the regular chapathis.

Be sure to buy an organic tofu.
