Dear soumya, With chapathi, you can take palak paneer, mixed vegetable curry, vegetable korma, any kind of dal, rajma(red kidney beans) curry, green peas curry, potato-blackeyed peas curry etc. For that matter, any gravy curry goes well with chapathi. Here's how I cook potato-blackeyed peas curry for chapathis: Potato - 1 large Black-eyed peas - 3/4 cup(soak for 2-4 hrs and pressure cook) Onion - 1(cut into small pieces) Green chillies - 2(cut into small pieces) Turmeric - 1/4 tsp chili pdr - 1/4 tsp rasam pdr - 1/2 tsp mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp jeera - 1/2 tsp salt - to taste oil - 1tbsp coriander leaves - fistful

Boil potato, peel skin and cut into medium pieces. Heat oil in a pan, add mustard, jeera seeds and when they splitter, add onions, green chillies. Fry till they turn transparent and add potatoes and beans, turmeric, salt and cook for few minutes. Add some water if necessary. Now add chili pdr and rasam powder and cook for 2-4 minutes and add chopped coriander leaves. Remove from heat.

Even your aloo curry, can be made soft. All you have to do is just add a little more water to the curry. So while making it will still be gravyish, but when you heat it, it will come to the right consistency. Also if you like you can add a little besan to the curry. This will make your regular aloo curry like a gravy dish.

Anyway, there are a lot of side dishes you can take with chapatti. You can just add a little tadka, and steamed carrots and cook. Just add some fresh grated coconut, stir for a few seconds, add salt and mix, and have this is chapati too. This is a nice nutritious side dish. You can make this with beans, cabbage, beetroot etc. I have the recipe in this page :…

You can make baingan bhartha. I just love this and it goes well with chapattis or even plain basmati rice :…

Or you can just fry okra, add salt and chilli powder and have it with chapattis. Or you can try this okra curry :…
