parchment paper


1/2 cup split chickpea and chicken curry, leftover
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup gram flour
1-2 green chilies, finely chopped
1 green onion stalk, finely chopped
1/2 small onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon coriander seeds, roasted & crushed
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon red chili powder
1 teaspoon coriander powder
1 teaspoon red chili flakes
1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
pinch of nigella seeds
1/4 teaspoon salt, to taste
5-7 tablespoons lukewarm milk or water, as needed
1 tablespoon ghee
1 tablespoon ghee, to toast


In a large bowl, mix split chickpea and chicken curry (shred the chicken pieces) with all-purpose flour, gram flour, green chilies, green onion, coriander seeds, turmeric, red chili powder, coriander powder, red chili flakes, cumin powder, nigella seeds, and salt. Gradually add lukewarm milk and knead with ghee to make a firm, smooth dough.

Heat a large skillet over a medium flame.

Meanwhile, divide the dough into 6-7 balls. Place each ball between two sheets of lightly floured parchment paper. Press down using hands or roll out each ball into 6x6 circles.

Place a flatbread on the heated skillet and cook it for half a minute. Brush some ghee and flip over the flatbread. Cook it for 1/2 to 1 minute. Brush ghee over the underside too. Use a tong to rotate and make both sides toasty with golden brown spots. Serve immediately.
