Chapati Seafood Quesadillas




It's funny how you find out things that make you say Umm, When I was talking to my brother who lives in Kenya East Africa, he told me during our conversation that his wife was Chapati so I ask him what was in it and how you make it so he and his wife shared the information with me along with a photo, when I saw the Chapati it reminded me of flat bread so I decided to get the recipe and try it myself but with a little twist to it I decided to turn it into a Chapati Seafood Quesadilla's that was really tasty.


Chapati is a food item I really know nothing about but me being a chef I can follow a recipe so I researched how to make Chapati. One thing I have notice and taste is that the Chapati very unique flavor that is really delicious and could be paired with any dish you are preparing or you can just eat it all by its self-but what I am going to do is turn it into a Tasty and filling Seafood Quesadilla that I sure you will love.


Before I begin let me give you a little insight about Chapati Bread, Chapati Bread is a unleavened flat bread that many claimed it was first made in India but there are few who say it was believed to had it origin in East Africa and there recipes are a little alike but not the same, India Chapati Flat Bread has really simple ingredients like, whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, salt, olive oil and hot water, While East Africa Chapati Bread has a more upscaled recipe which consist of, whole wheat pastry flour, salt, water and sunflower oil.

Now if you ask me I think the East Africa recipe packed a really good taste profile, With that being said I want to share with you my recipe for my Chapati Bread then I am going to share my recipe for my Chapati Seafood Quesadilla that is really good and tasty, Come on and follow me.

Handicapped Chefs Chapati Bread

Ingredients
2 cups of spelt flour
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
1 pinch of white pepper
teaspoon of sriracha chili sauce
2 Tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil (divided in half)
1 1/4 cup of butter milk
1 teaspoon of water


My twist for my Chapati Bread me adding the sriracha chili sauce by using the chili sauce it gives the bread a hint of spiciness along with a hint of sweetness from the sugar that's in the sriracha sauce, Now using the buttermilk makes the Chapati Bread more softer and fluffier texture.


Methods


Lets begin making the Chapati Bread by adding 1-1/4 cups of spelt flour, then add a teaspoon of olive oil and blend in together with your finger so it can get clumpy at this point slowly add your buttermilk using your hands to mix the ingredients together until the dough comes together as one nice ball if for any reason the dough doesn't come together add 1 or 2 tablespoon of water.

When the dough comes together it's time to start kneading the dough so lightly flour the table surface and knead the dough until the dough is smooth and is not sticking to your hands or fingers, knead for about 4 to 6 minutes, When the smooth and not sticky place your dough in a glass bowl cove with a damp cloth and let it sit to rise for about 30 minutes.


Now that your dough has risen your now ready to work with your dough, equally divide the dough into 8 ball and then replace your damp cloth, now flour your rolling pin and clean down your work area and get ready to start rolling out the Chapati dough balls out.

Flour your work surface again and start rolling out each of the chapati dough balls about 1/8th thickness now remember the dough will eventually shrink up a little about 4 to 5 inches in diameter, then add them on a baking sheet making sure you space them apart so they don't touch cover with a towel until they are all down, so we can start adding them in a hot skillet.

Using a griddle over a medium high heat, add a roll out dough 1 at a time and cook until it starts to small bubbles or browning around the edges about 60 seconds then flip and brush the Chapati Bread and let it continue to cook until it puffs a little bit, transfer to a platter cover and repeat until finished but keep them warm until you are completely done cooking. If you like you can now taste or start on making your seafood quesadillas.
