Weekend Special Breakfast
I was really running out of what to do everyday for breakfast and kinda of wake up really early -was puzzled what to be prepared for breakfast. When I opened my fridge a package of mustard greens has being laying there for a long time and decide to make chapatti with them with whole green gram fry and green salad.

1/2 tomato chopped
2 garlic cloves
salt to taste
1/4tsp turmeric powder

1/4tsp cumin seeds
1/4tsp fennel seeds
Micro-wave all the ingredients with some water on high for about 4 minutes and once cooled add 2tbsp fresh curd and pulse to a fine paste. add more salt if needed and keep aside.

Flatten the balls with a rolling pin into round discs approximately 6 inches in diameter.

Heat a heavy based frying pan or griddle on a medium heat. Place the rolled chapati on the griddle.While on the girdle press the edges of the chapati with a paper towel . You will find that small bubbles start forming on the chapati that means it is getting cooked. Turn over and cook the other side. The chapati may puff up. Flip over cook the first side again.
