Sabsige Soppu Chapathi (Dill Roti / Dill Flatbread)

Sabsige Soppu Chapathi is a healthy Indian flat bread made of Dill. In Kannada, sabsige soppu means Dill. This herb is a rich source of calcium and Iron. This bread, also known as Dill Roti, is healthy to consume on a regular basis. 

We both love dill and hence I keep searching recipes for dill. While searching I stumbled upon this recipe @Chefinyou. I make Methi chapathi but never struck me that I can use dill as well. I made little variations and was totally happy with the results. Try this healthy Indian bread for dinner and enjoy.  Try making my other recipes on Dill- Sabsige soppu rotti and Sabsige soppu ambado.

  • Whole Wheat Flour/ Multi Grain Flour- 1 cup+ extra for dusting
  • Sabsige Soppu/ Dill- A few Sprigs
  • Oil- 1 tsp and more for frying
  • Salt- To taste


Wash the dill leaves and cut off the stem (discarding the stem is absolutely necessary as it eases the process of rolling). Then chop the leaves finely (the quantity of leaves to be added is left to one's own choice. I add generous amount of it, as we like the strong flavor of it). 

Add the chopped leaves to a bowl along with flour and salt. Add 3/4 tsp of oil and then mix them all. Now make a soft non-sticky dough, adding little water at a time. Apply few drops of oil on the surface of the dough and let the dough rest for 15-20 minutes, covered.

Divide the dough into 5 equal parts and make smooth balls.

Now dip one of the dough ball in flour and start rolling it into a circle, not too thick/ thin.

Now fry this on a pan or griddle on both sides, until golden brown spots are got. Spread few drops of oil on chapathi, while frying. Transfer it on a plate.

Sabsige Soppu Chapathi is ready!!

Serve it hot with any chutney or curry of your choice. Above measurement makes five medium sized chapathis.
