Indian bread Chapati served with a vegetarian side dish of: spiced chickpeas, grilled pumpkin and yogurt sauce.

The Chapati bread is a typical bread of the Indian cuisine, which is very similar to our “piadina”.
It’s prepared using no yeast and with only 3 ingredients: flour, water, salt; it’s daily prepared and eaten in India, like our bread with meat, vegetable and traditional sauces.

I’m suggesting that you had some chapati bread with spicy side dish chickpeas, red cabbage, grilled pumpkin and flavoured with yogurt sauce.


I cooked chapati and also the pumpkin using Risolì GRILL “NON SOLO PIZZA”, 100% made in Italy. It’s perfect both for baking in the oven and for the stove and it can be used to serve the food on the table keeping it warm longer.
