Chaash means Buttermilk made by whisking plain yogurt and water.
Rotli in Gujarati means roti, chapati, wheat tortilla (wheat flat bread)
I remember my mom making this quick chaash wali rotli for me while I would return back from school. I always liked a warm snack like upma or poha or chass wali rotli before I would get back to doing my homework. :)
All you need is some left over rotis/chapatis (2-3) and butter milk/chaash (made from plain yogurt and water)
In a pan, heat 1 tsp of oil, add 1 tsp. mustard seeds, green chillies, and few curry leaves.
Fry a pinch or turmeric powder.
Add finely chopped 1 tomato (optional)
My mom never put tomato but I like this a little tangy :)
Fry chopped tomato till it is cooked well.
Add 1 cup of buttermilk and 1 cup of water (if the buttermilk is very thick)
Do you like my measuring cup?
This is an actual 1 cup measurement:) It comes with a set of 1/2, 1/3, and 1/4 measurements too.
Be careful while adding the buttermilk!
Add 1 tsp. red chilly powder and I tsp. coriander powder.
While the buttermilk is boiling, stack the left over chapatis on a board.
(You could see my rolling pin and some dusting flour on my counter. This was because I made fresh chapatis. This is one of my comfort food and remembrance of my childhood :) )
Cut chapatis into small pieces using a knife or pizza cutter.
You could also tear chapatis to have rustic uneven pieces.
Allow the buttermilk to come to a boil so that tomatoes are cooked well too!
Add cut chapati pieces to the boiling buttermilk. Mix for a minute or 2.
Garnish with cilantro and serve hot!.
I enjoyed it with some raw mango slices sprinkled with salt and red pepper :)
