Sweet Potato Chapatis

I was making a new gravy for lunch today and was following the given recipe correctly. That’s when innovation struck me and pretty soon cooking disaster followed.

I have  given strict instructions to my brain not to use itself when it comes to cooking, but then who listens!  The rest of my day will be spent in thinking up convincing excuses to defend my lousy curry.

Now coming to the recipe here, this is a fail proof one. Its an excellent way to sneak in vegetables into your kids diet. This chapati was really really soft, making it excellent for lunch box. This is a sweet version, you can make a savory version by adding red chilli powder, coriander powder and some fresh or dried methi leaves.


  • Sweet Potato                :           1 medium, cooked and mashed
  • Wheat Flour                 :           1 1/2 cups
  • Sugar                               :           1 tsp (optional)
  • Water                              :           as required


  1. Cook and mash the sweet potatoes. There shouldn’t be any lumps. I cooked them in microwave.
  2. Add this and the flour in a bowl and make a dough, adding water as required.
  3. You might have to add/adjust the flour to get the dough to the consistency of chapati dough.
  4. The dough will be very soft. Cover and keep aside for half an hour at least.
  5. Roll into chapatis. Try using all purpose flour instead of Atta while rolling these.
  6. Heat a tava and cook them on both sides, these puff up well too if placed directly on the flame.
  7. Soft and sweet chapatis are ready, serve with a nice side dish!
