Delicious and healthy too so long as you are sparing with the sev and puris. I too used oil instead of ghee. I've also successfuly made it with a black urad dal 'ragda' and sweet potato pattice.

Delicious,hot and chapatta just love this roadside snack...to make it healthy I stuff the pattice with sprouted moong,corriander,giger-chilli paste,and use very little ghee to cook the pattice.
