When I discovered Indian Cuisine I was amazed by how closely it resembles the Mexican Cuisine I grew up on. A few alterations and many of the traditional dishes could fit in either place. Tortillas and Indian Roti or Chapati are just two of the staples I’ve come to love when I eat food from these cuisines. And the variety of chiles, variations on cumin, and other spices that create full flavors and aromas to tempt any foodie.
I recently had the opportunity to do a cooking demo in New Delhi, India. So, I decided to re-invent the low-carb tortilla and turn it into a traditional Indian Chapati or Roti. It was a huge success. I added a touch of coconut flour to make it hold together a little better without needing chia seeds. The coconut flour creates a pliability without adding full coconut flavor. The ground psyllium husk is available everywhere in India, so it wasn’t a stretch to make this work.
Below is the new version of the recipe. The first version (the Keto-Friendly Tortilla) is still good. If you decide you like it better with almond flour and no coconut, please feel free to continue using the original recipe. I encourage you to try both.
Use either one as a wrap for your favorite fillings. Make it your own by adding herbs or spices, baking it after it’s done to turn it into a cracker, or any other ways you can think of. Let us know what you think!
