ZAGNYs cook along Chapat Class was so much fun and this is one Chapat served with chocolate mousse, whipped cream, strawberries, blueberries.

After the class and during the zoomers from New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, San Diego, Washington, Canada and more enjoyed the cook along chapats made in their own homes.

Darius Kapadia from Pennsylvania writes
I did hear from the ladies (Phiroza and Delna) that Rita’s Chapat demonstration was a great hit and the proof was in the pudding… as in the Chapats for our Sunday breakfast. They went great with blueberry syrup and we all overate! I’m clamoring for it to be a Sunday repeat😉.

So these little beauties are not stuffed! Like Jhuls I love all crepes and pancakes. This version has more ingredients than I have ever seen – all the better I’m sure. Happy Fiesta Friday Rita!

Rita, the “chapats” look lovely ( just like you). Will try making them soon. Wish you were here ( in NewZealand) your food would be a rave.
