Homemade Chapati

Let’s come to think of it. You just come back from work and you are hungry. You find a ready-to-eat Indian curry but you don’t have some naan to accompany your today’s dinner. You already changed to your comfortable clothes and took off makeup/contact lenses. Of course it would be a huge NO to wear back the appropriate clothes, grab your car key and go get some naan to your local grocery. You might want to change today’s menu, but I can hear your brain is ordering the curry immediately to your empty stomach, so let’s make some homemade chapati now!

So here is a question. Although chapati is more popular in India (based on what I heard,) why can’t I find them in my local Indian restaurants? Naan is still great enough, but it’d be better to have an option. Oh but wait…when I go to an Indian restaurant, I always have a huge debate to have either saag paneer or tikka masala and most of the time I have to ask waiters to come back later. Well, there must be many people like me: indecisive:P
