Vegetable Stuffed Wheat Chapati

Here is a kidney-friendly vegetable-stuffed wheat chapati recipe that is both nutritious and delicious, suitable for CKD patients.


For the Dough:

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup water (adjust as needed)
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • A pinch of salt (optional)

For the Stuffing:

  • 1/2 cup grated carrot
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped cabbage
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp ginger paste
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander leaves
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • Salt to taste (optional and minimal)
  • Black pepper to taste


Prepare the Dough:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine whole wheat flour, a pinch of salt (optional), and olive oil.
  2. Gradually add water and knead into a soft, pliable dough.
  3. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and set aside for 15-20 minutes.

Prepare the Stuffing:

  1. Heat 1 tsp of olive oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat.
  2. Add cumin seeds and let them sizzle.
  3. Add the finely chopped onion and sauté until it turns translucent.
  4. Add ginger paste and cook for another minute.
  5. Add grated carrot, chopped cabbage, and green bell pepper. Cook for 4-5 minutes until the vegetables are slightly tender but still crisp.
  6. Add coriander powder, turmeric powder, black pepper, and salt to taste. Mix well.
  7. Cook for another 2-3 minutes until the spices are well incorporated and the vegetables are cooked but not mushy.
  8. Stir in the chopped coriander leaves and mix well.
  9. Remove from heat and let the mixture cool completely.

Assemble the Chapatis:

  1. Divide the dough into equal-sized balls.
  2. Roll out each ball into a small circle (about 4 inches in diameter) on a lightly floured surface.
  3. Place a spoonful of the vegetable stuffing in the center of the circle.
  4. Bring the edges together to seal the stuffing inside the dough, forming a ball again.
  5. Gently roll out the stuffed ball into a flat circle (about 6-7 inches in diameter). Be careful not to let the stuffing spill out.
  6. Heat a non-stick pan or tawa over medium heat.
  7. Place the rolled-out chapati on the pan and cook until bubbles start to appear on the surface.
  8. Flip the chapati and cook the other side until golden brown spots appear.
  9. Brush lightly with olive oil if desired and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes on each side.
  10. Remove from the pan and keep warm. Repeat with the remaining dough and stuffing.
