chapati box

Recommended Posts

This is of course a topic tangential to 'international food' but can anyone tell me where to buy a chapati box? These are boxes - they tend to be round - with lids and keep chapatis, naans, etc warm. They are a common household item in south Asia. Has anyone seen one, or a substitute which might serve the same  purpose, in Thailand?

I think you are referring to a Tiffin box,that's what they are called in India,

where you see  tiffin wallahs riding about piled high with tiffin boxes to

deliver lunches to the workers.

 

You can find the in Thailand,but don't know what they are called,but

can be easily found in large supermarket,Makro,and kitchen depts.

in Malls, available in different sizes,3 or 4 containers high.stainless steel.

No, not the 'tiffin box'.  A chapati box would be just for chapatis - right width and more or less airtight.  It takes chapatis as they are made and keeps them warm for a bit.

 

are you referring to a heated container that's kept in the kitchen rather than a simple container that's carried around? I've seen those in canteens at various building sites in the ME where there are a lot of south asian workers...probably a lot easier to find in those parts than in Thailand...

 

there's probably a lot of available small kitchen appliances in Thailand that could substitute...have a look around the small appliance section of the larger tescos, makro and homepro...and make smaller chapattis so that they fit...not as nice as what yer lookin' for but this is the SE Asian jungle and it's every man for himself and god against all...
