Banana Chapathi

I had never imagined that one day I would document so many recipes with banana/plantain. Baalehannu rasayana, banana appam, baalekayi chips, baalekayi bajji, banana bread, banana milkshake, baalehannina dosa etc. The list is quite long and to make it longer we have a new kid on the block, enter banana chapathi! One of the best dishes to pack for the lunch box for kids, slather with little ghee and roll them up. Kids will absolutely love this banana chapathi!
Banana chapathi can make use of a nice ripe banana and it is flavoured with elaichi making it taste really delicious. My mother taught me this easy recipe and I make it for our office lunch box all the time! We love eating banana chapathi with mango pickle or some simple palya or curry.

Chapathis and theplas can be made in a wide variety of ways, carrot paratha, lauki thepla, beetroot paratha, tomato paratha, methi thepla, sabsige soppu paratha and so many more. Use regular whole wheat flour/atta to make these soft banana chapathi and lunch box will never be the same again

Notes
Use a ripe banana, it makes the chapathis soft and sweet

You can also roast the chapathis with ghee instead of oil

Resting the dough helps in gluten formation and makes the chapathis soft
