In a bowl add the flour/atta oil & salt.Mix it well using water (sprinkle water in small quantity).
Otherwise Boil water in a vessel and add salt in it. Once it is boiled add atta flour and mix it. Then off the flame and keep it aside. This process will make chapati more soft.
Make a soft,non-sticky dough. Keep it aside for minimum 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes make lemon sized balls using dough.
Take one ball, roll out the ball into a uniform thin circle using atta flour.
Heat a non-stick pan & put the chapathi. Cook both sides using a ladle. you can use ghee or oil for cooking (use a brush for spread the oil on chapathi).
Boil the potatoes. once get cooked remove the skin and chop into small pieces.
Heat oil or ghee in a pan. Fry ginger, garlic, green chilies and curry leaves. Then add chopped onion. Saute the onions till it become translucent. Add the chopped potatoes, coriander leaves and stir it well. Then add turmeric powder, garam masala and salt.
If you need to make more healthy, then add carrots also in the masala.

In a chapati place masala( 2 big spoon) into it and roll it.
Its a simple and easy recipe, school going children love to eat it as lunch rather than chapati and curry.
