Recipe Ingredients for Chappatti

2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tspn salt
1 tspn vegetable oil

Recipe Directions for Chappatti

  1. Knead the dough, cover, and leave aside for at least 1/2 hour or, ideally, up to 2 hours. After about 1 hour (or right before rolling out), punch the dough and knead again without any more water.

  2. Make 10-12 1 1/2" balls; dip each one into dry whole wheat flour, and roll out into thin, 6" circles. Place a flat, ungreased griddle on the stove at medium-high heat. When hot, place a rolled-out chapati "right side" down on the griddle. (The "right side" is the one facing you when you roll it.) When bubbles are visible, turn over and cook until tiny brown spots appear on the side facing the griddle.

  3. If you have a gas stove, hold the chapati with a pair of tongs, and place it directly over the burner flame for a few seconds, until the chapati puffs up. Turn and repeat on the other side.

  4. If you have an electric stove, keep the chapati on the griddle. With a wadded up paper towel to protect your fingers, press gently all around the chapati. Flip the chapati and press gently around the other side. This procedure should make the chapati puff up. (If you press too hard, the chapati will become too crunchy.)

  5. Remove the chapati from the heat, and buter with ghee on the "right side."

  6. Some of the foods that are traditionally served with chapatis are Lentils with Scallions, Spicy Mung Beans, eggplant dishes, green bean dishes, spinach dishes, and zucchini dishes.
