South Indian / Triangle Chappathi / Plain Paratha

South Indian / Triangle chappathi / Plain parantha is one of my favourites from childhood days. My amma and  paati makes this chappathi at home. This is usually paired with masaal ( Potato sabzi) and is made during weekend. But later we have started making phulkas since it is more healthy and donot consume any oil to get cooked. But I also make this traditional South Indian / Triangle chappathi once in a while to relish and to go back to my childhood days. This chappathi is best for travel as it stays soft for long time. I have used ghee to spread on the chappathi but we can also use gingelley oil and then fold it. This is also Krish’s favourite.

Like these triangle shaped chapathi!

I love Ghee Chapati. They are so soft and love how they form nice layers because of ghee. Aromatic and very filling.

I love paratha in any form, these are my favorite paratha since childhood days. We used to add salt while making paratha not into dough. They are so soft and love the layers into it. Love to eat with pickle and tea, very filling.

Niranjana I too have grown up enjoying triangle parathas.. we call them chaupada. I use to also make them for my kids often. Its been ages since I make parathas or chapati this way. Have to make them soon.

I make them as you mentioned but I roll into a circle. My shape is different but the method is same. Good to see a post on chapati Niranjana.

Your post made be nostalgic. My family back in India also makes triangle chapatis. I have grown up eating them . Goes with all curries. I cannot make a triangle chapati even today. Always make a square or round one .
