5. Heat a griddle on medium heat and then add the rolled chapathis and cook on both sides by turning it till you see small brown spots on both sides.

1. Take a warm chapathi and keep little potato masala on the center.
2. Add little coleslaw on top of it and then add little mint yogurt on top.
3. Roll the chapathis and enjoy.
