Ingredients
Servings: chapati
Instructions
  1. Make a well in the flour, add salt to taste and water a little at a time.
  2. Go slow with the water - add it as you go along and only as needed. Instead of water, you can also use yogurt or milk. The result is really soft Chapatis.
  3. The secret to really soft Chapatis lies in the kneading. The dough must be smooth and just the right softness - medium. Add water/ yogurt/ milk as required and continue to knead till you get the right consistency. Adding oil at this stage is optional but it makes the dough very smooth and soft Chapatis.
  4. The finished dough must be smooth. After it is done, cover and set it aside for 10-15 minutes to rest.
  5. Divide the dough into equal portions, 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 and keep ready to roll out. Doing this will prevent the ball from sticking to the rolling surface. Roll!
  6. Heat a pan on a medium flame and put the rolled out Chapati on it to cook. Cook one side and flip to cook the other.
