Apple Walnut Dates Chappati - With Dates Chutney

My twist on this sweeet chappati is that I have added Apple and Dates for sweetness and Walnut for its nutrition.

Apple is loaded with tons of nutrients. It's a rich source of antioxidants, fibre and flavanoids. It reduces the risk of cancer, heart diseases, hypertension and diabetics.

Walnut and Dates have lots of nutrients too. Its rich in iron, fibre and other important vitamins and minerals.
