Chapati (Tanzania Flat Bread)
Chapati is a very popular dish in Tanzania. It is similar to the Indian roti except for the fact that it is fried in a little bit of oil.
Chapati can be eaten alone or accompanied by vegetable or meat stew. It also makes a good breakfast when eaten with tea or milk. You can think of chapati as a flat version of bread which means you can even use it to make a sandwich!
Although preparing chapati involves a lot of systematic steps, the results are definitely rewarding. The best types are the layered ones which people enjoy tearing apart while eating. Try making your own chapati and see how it turns out.
