Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour,
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour,
  • 1 teaspoon salt,
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil,
  • 3/4 cup hot water or as needed

Method

    1. In a large bowl, stir together the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour and salt.
    2. Use a wooden spoon to stir in the olive oil and enough water to make a soft dough that is elastic but not sticky.
    3. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until it is smooth. Divide into 10 parts, or less if you want bigger breads. Roll each piece into a ball. Let rest for a few minutes.
    4. Heat a frying pan over medium heat until hot, and grease lightly
    5. n a lightly floured surface, use a floured rolling pin to roll out the balls of dough until very thin like a tortilla.
    6. When the pan starts smoking, put a chapati on it. Cook until the underside has brown spots, about 30 seconds, then flip and cook on the other side.

I made chapati for the first time at the weekend using this recipe as a guide. I only needed 2 chapati so I used around 4 heaped tbsp flour, than added enough tepid water to bring it all together in a ball, knead it on the counter for a few minutes until smooth, then left sitting while awaiting the pan to smoke, before rolling into flat rounds and cooking in the pan. The result was delicious and has been easy to replicate since. I will never buy shop bought flatbreads again, thank you!
