Haven't tried with chapatis Asha! But it seems that it tastes nice with chapatis too.

Thank you and welcome Shriya! I too like green colour.

I agree with you Remya! It's good for health especially for eyes.

Yes Sagari! It consumes more time for grating and less time for cooking but the end result will be great.

Though the grating part is difficult, it tastes great Deepa!

Hi Seena...even my children didn't like eating carrots but ever since I started grating them, they don't mind them :)
