    Hi srilatha86...

    congrats on your pregnancy... as i understand, there is nothing wrong with the frozen chapathis and are safe for consumption during pregnancy. But when i had been to my ob during my first visit- she had suggested that i opt for fresh and unprocessed foods.

    i understand in your first trimester- cooking is that last thing you want to do and frozen foods come as a blessing; but if possible and there is a way out- do try to avoid them and prepare fresh ones. just for the reason that how much ever they say it is fresh and havent used pesticides in their farms- there will be some amount of preservatives...

    so as such no harm, but the freshly prepared ones are way better

    you in NJ right, you can get somebody who makes fresh chapatis, am sure nj has many ladies who sell fresh chapatis ,if you dont want to make fresh ones, but frozen would be my last resort, may be once in a while its ok :)

    Hi srilatha

    I was in your boat, I was not able to cook and so all this store bought roti seemed like a great idea. But I could not handle it. I used to throw it out. Thought it may have been a different thg as at that time i could not handle any thg made of wheat. So i used to stick to rice (that too the one with starch removed) it was lighter on my stomach. Now that i am better i make the roties at home. the store bought can never compare :)
    hope this helps
