Multigrain means it includes several types of grains. In this recipe, I used multigrain cereal which has oats, barley, wheat and rye. This is a healthy alternative to regular wheat chapathi, having once or twice a week in diet is good for health. This can be served with any raita or dal.
1 Cup of Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 Cup of Multigrain Cereal, roasted and powdered
1 Tbsp of Oil
1 Cup of Warm Water
Salt as needed
Health Benefits of Multigrain Chapathi
- Serve with any dal or onion raita.
- Adding warm water to flour makes chapathi soft.
- You can add butter instead of oil.
- You can also add vegetables of your choice, to make veggie multigrain chapathi.
- Multigrain foods will be high in complex carbohydrates and protein.
Complex carbs are great for energy production, and this can help with
exercise and losing weight.
- The levels of protein will aid the body in tissue repair and
production of antibodies that will help fight sickness or infection.
- In addition, they will contain nutrients, fiber and essential
minerals like magnesium, copper and iron. Multigrains that contain whole
grains will be filled with essential fatty acids, B-vitamins,
starch and fiber. Magnesium will help build strong bones and teeth. It
will also help with metabolism. Fiber is great in helping the body stay
regular and maintaining a healthy colon.
Adding Multigrains to a Diet
- Multigrains can be added to
any meal throughout the day.
- At breakfast you could start with a
multigrain oatmeal with some blueberries mixed in or any fruits.
- At lunch you could
have a peanut butter and strawberry jam on two slices of multigrain
bread and then
- At dinner you could have a healthy portion of multigrain
rice or chapathi with dal.
