In the food context, 'chappati' (chapati) is a type of flatbread that is commonly consumed in South Asia, particularly in countries like India, Pakistan, Nepal, and Bangladesh. Also known as "roti" or "phulka," chapati is a staple food in these regions and is enjoyed as a part of regular meals.

It is made from whole wheat flour, water, and sometimes salt. Chapatis are typically rolled out into thin, round discs and cooked on a hot griddle or tawa. They are often served hot and can be eaten with a variety of dishes or used as a wrap for fillings.

Chapatis are widely appreciated for their simplicity, versatility, and nutritional value. Here are some examples of how chapatis are enjoyed in different ways:

1. Accompaniment to Curries and Vegetables:
Chapatis are often served alongside curries, lentils, or vegetable dishes. They are torn into smaller pieces and used to scoop up the flavorful gravies or curries. The soft and chewy texture of chapatis complements the spicy and aromatic curries, creating a delicious combination.

2. Wraps and Rolls:
Chapatis are commonly used as a wrap to enclose various fillings, creating a portable and convenient meal. Some popular examples include:

- Aloo Paratha: Chapati filled with a spiced mashed potato mixture.
- Paneer Tikka Roll: Chapati filled with grilled paneer (cottage cheese) and assorted vegetables.
- Kathi Roll: Chapati filled with marinated and grilled meats, vegetables, and sauces.

3. Breakfast Dishes:
Chapatis are also consumed as part of breakfast meals. They can be paired with yogurt, pickles, or chutneys. In some regions, leftover chapatis are crushed and cooked with spices and vegetables to make dishes like chapati upma or chapati poha.
