16 Bean Minty Chappati

I bought a packet of 16 bean soup mix.Made adai with these and rest of the bean mix is lying in my pantry waiting for me.I got an idea of making stuffed paratha and soaked bean mix in the afternoon.
But in the evening busy playing with my lil one,it was too late for me make dinner.So i simply added cooked bean  with wheat flour and made chappati.To give a nice flavor i added mint paste.and it turned out really good.Healthy and tasty.

Wheat Flour : 2 1/2 cup+a little extra for dusting
16 Bean Mix : 1 cup(cooked)
Tomato : 1 small
Mint Leaves : a handful
Cumin seeds : 1tsp
Chilli Powder : 1tsp
Garam Masala : 2 tsp
Salt : as needed
water : to knead the dough(if needed)
Ghee : 2tsp

Grind the tomatoes and mint leaves and keep aside.

Soak 1 cup of bean for 5 to 6 hours and cooked until soft.Drain the water completely from beans.
Excess water can be used to make dhal or curry.

1.In a bowl,add the cooked beans and mash with potato masher or with hand.
2.Add the wheat flour and gently mix.
3.Add the spices with salt and ghee.
4.Mix gently.
5.Slowly add little by little minty paste to the mixture and make a dough.
6.If you feel too sticky, add little flour to make a dough.
7.Let rest for 15mins.
8.Take the dough and make a small lemon size ball and flatten them in to round shape.
9.In a hot iron griddle,place the flatten chapati and cook on both side.
10.Follow with rest of the dough.
11.Brush some ghee for extra flavor and enjoy!!

Variations:You can adjust the chilli powder as your spice level also can add small green chilli.
