When you want a healthier option other than rice to go with your Indian food, you can count on these chapati places in KL.

More often than not, chapati isn’t the first option that comes to mind when thinking of carby Indian food. Instead, others like banana leaf rice, biryani, naan, and even roti canai are winners. Little did you know that this Indian flat bread is actually the healthiest option you can get. 

We round up some of the best places in town to have chapati alongside some delicious Indian food. These places are so good that they even have their own fan base.

Sentral Chappati House

Sentral Chappati House is a small place tucked in Little India, Brickfields. Just a look at the humble shop and you can see that it’s been around for a while.

Workers dole out piece after piece of flatbread for customers – everything here is self-service, so get your chapati and choose your curries and side dishes.
