With its amazing produce, from fruit and vegetables to spices and fish, south India is renowned for its tasty cuisine. Enjoying home-cooked food is one of the highlights of any Village Ways trip, and this tasty chapati is a favourite for dinner at the our ‘Spice House’ in Hulgol, Karnataka. Ravi Hegde, our guide, and 'NT' Hegde, our watchful housekeeper, kindly provided the recipe:
* Take two bananas and make into a paste
* Add 250 g of wheat flour and two tablespoons of sugar
* Mix thoroughly with water and pinch of salt
*Roll it out with a rolling pin
* Place on hotplate or in a pan to cook.
What could be simpler, to evoke a true taste of rural south India? Why not try it yourself?
