    Hi all,
    Does anyone know if it is possible to make lower carb or low GI chappati's. Tried making them with gram flour, but they just fall apart, and a curry just isn't the same without them. Tried the rice alternative, but gave up and ate curry with a spoon.

    dunno about chapattis, but tesco do a nice run of onion bahji's @ 7g of carb each, so is a nice treat with the currys (and we had it with cabbage instead of rice)

    I use carbalose flour which is low carb. Then it is just your usual recipe.
    My recipe just uses the flour and water mixed then rested before rolling out and frying for a few seconds each side like a pancake but then repeating the flipping and patting the chappati until it rises then do the other side. Keep warm in warm oven in a clean tea towel whilst you make up the rest of the batch.
    Tastes fine.
    I have not tried reheating though.
