Chapati (flat bread)

  • 1 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup of water
  •  1 pinch of salt, add to the flour

The dough must be smooth and medium softeness. Add water as required and continue to knead till you get the right consistency. Cover and set it aside for 10 minutes to rest.
 
Divide the dough into roughly the size of a golf ball. Roll between your palms, applying a gentle pressure, till the balls are smooth and without cracks. Make as many as you need. Add a little flour to the dough, so it does not stick when rolling the chapati. The rolled out Chapati must not be too thin, approximate 4 mm or it will not puff when roasted.
 
Heat a pan on a medium heat and put the rolled out Chapati on it. The Chapati is ready for its first flip when you begin to see raised bumps on its surface. Wait 10 seconds after the second flip and use a folded kitchen towel to gently press the Chapati around its edges. The steam that caused the Chapati to balloon will release soon after it is removed from the fire and ready to be served.
