Fun Indian Bread for Kids!

indian_bread_recipe_kids_chapati

You only have to make an ordinary thing different for kids to love it. So it is with bread. Indian moms make meals fun for kids by lending different shapes to the usual Indian bread called chapatti. The regular chapatti is not only big, but is also difficult for kids to break into pieces. The easy solution is to get creative and cut out different shapes after rolling out the dough.

To know how to make a traditional chapatti, see the chapatti recipe.

Use up the entire rolled out dough (a leftover piece can be a half-moon!) to save time in rolling and cooking chapattis!

If you are in the mood for some complex designs, you can carve your kid’s favorite cartoon character!
