ABOUT Chapati-Potato Bhaji RECIPE

Chapati Bhaji is a traditional Maharashtrian breakfast. Chapati or roti is being prepared early in the morning and served along with tea applying lots of ghee or with subji/Bhaji or even eaten as it is as a ghee-shakkar roti. In remote locations of Maharashtra and konkan region people usually have healthy breakfast which includes, Bhakari-Techa, Bhakari Pithle, or Chapati Bhaji, Chai-Chapati etc. In this recipe I have shown Chapati and Potato bhaji which can also be served with Puri as a puri Bhaji. Simple, easy and healthy breakfast recipe is loved by everyone. Its filling and wholesome.
