Chapathi with ghee and Sugar

Another chapathi recipe which is a favourite lunch box recipe at our place. That too during the monsoon season. Kids love this. And it is also easy to make. Do try this.
Meanwhile kids at our place call this the triangle chapathi.


Wheat flour - 2 cups
Lukewarm water - 1/2 cup
Salt - to taste
Ghee - 5 tsp (unmelted)
Sugar - 5 tbsp


  • Mix the wheat flour and salt. Add lukewarm water little by little and make a smooth dough.
  • Keep it aside for 30-40 minutes.
  • Split the dough into equal sized balls.
  • Roll one of the balls into a nice round chapathi.
  • Spread little ghee into half of the chapathi. Sprinkle sugar on top of ghee.
  • Fold the chapathi into half. Again spread ghee and sugar and fold the chapathi into quarters. Keep it aside.
  • Make all the remaining balls into such triangles with ghee and sugar.
  • Heat the tawa with medium heat.
  • Take the triangle and spread it with the rolling pin. Don't make it too thin. Just spread a little bit.
  • Cook this chapathi in medium heat. Flip the chapathi every 10 seconds so as to cook it evenly.

Sweet chapathis are ready!! Ofcourse no side dish is needed. Enioy!!

  1. You have reminded me of my childhood with this chapati. My mom used to make it and we as kids loved that melted sugar oozing out of chapati.

  2. This is the process for everyday chapati. I would never have thought of replacing the oil with ghee and sugar. Now I have to try this.

  3. I can just imagine how pleased my daughter would be with this version of the chapati. Lovely dish!

  4. I remember giving my kids hot roti with ghee and sugar sprinkled over it. Its a great idea to sort of use it as a filling.

  5. I make this by spreading ghee and sprinkling sugar over it. The kids love it for lunch. Mom make these king of triangle parathas...

  6. This was our favorite way of eating when we were kids! wow, looks inviting!
