There’s no better partner for the most savoury Indian dishes other than the softest complementing wholemeal chapati. Chapati is also called in various terms like also known as roti, rotli, safati, shabaati, phulka, and roshi (in the Maldives). It is an unleavened flatbread, which means that it was made without the use of any leavening agent like yeast.
Luckily, there’s no need to worry about making your chapatis at home from scratch, Shana Wholemeal Chapatti is a ready-made roti which you can get for a pack of 8’s or even in multipacks of 20’s so you can be sure that you’ll never run out of this delicious side dish which truly elevates every rich and savoury dishes it gets paired with.
If you’re wondering about the wholemeal chapatti calories that you will get, this product will never let you down. The amount of calories in one (1) chapati is only 71 calories, which makes it a friendly addition to vegan diets. So even if you finish the entire pack of Shana Wholemeal Chapatti, you’ll be just fine, though we highly doubt that because the reason why it’s considered to be a great substitute for rice and other bread is that it gives you the feeling of fullness without consuming that much carbohydrates compared with a single cup of rice. So what should you do if there are more chapatis left? Stuff it in the freezer. Frozen chapatis aren’t as bad as it sounds. It is the best way to store your ready-made chapatis, as you can simply thaw it out once you’re ready to eat them – your frozen chapati will still come out great as if it was freshly made. This is because freezing your food will actually preserve its quality state, so by the time that you take it out of the freezer, once it thaws out, it would still be the same as when you put it in. Just remember that this is only applicable the first time, so make sure that you only thaw out what you will be eating.
