Chapati / Rotis

  • 2 cups Wheat flour
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 2 tbsps Oil
  • 1- 1 ½ cups Water

  1. Take wheat flour in a bowl.
  2. Add salt and mix well.
  3. Toss and slowly add water while mixing the flour into a dough.
  4. Add water only as much as required.
  5. Don’t knead just yet. The flour has to come together.
  6. Now add the oil and knead to a  soft ball. It should not be sticky.
  7. Cover and keep aside for at least 10 minutes, longer is better.
  8. Knead the dough well so the chapatis comes out soft.
  9. Make even sized balls, roll them with the help of a rolling pin.
  10. Flip in wheat flour if the dough is too sticky.
  11. Make a flat round shape disc.
  12. Heat a pan, when very hot put the rolled disc on the pan.
  13. When the color of the chapati changes apply oil gently on top, spread them evenly and flip it.
  14. Now apply oil on the other side and flip it again.
  15. Do not flip chapatis too much. Once they are roasted on both the sides remove from heat immediately.
  16. Cover chapatis with a cloth or paper towel to keep them warm and from drying out.  
  17. Serve with curry, gravies, etc.
