Must Try

One of the most typical hindu breads, it combines with everything, even hot milk!

Many think chapatis are difficult to make but to be honest is one of the easiest recipes, see yourself how easy it is.


  • 1 ½ cups whole wheat flour
  • ½  cup white flour
  • Water
  • ¼ cup ghee or melted butter 


1Mix together flour and water. Add water gradually until dough is soft but not wet and can be kneaded. Knead the dough until fairly soft (about 10 minutes). Cover and let stand 1 hour. 

2Sprinkle flour on the rolling area and pinch off balls of dough about 1 ½  inches in diameter. Flatten balls and roll out to about 4-5” in diameter. Heat a skillet (you should have one just for this purpose; always keep it clean and free from oil or ghee-cast iron is best).

3Place the chapati on the skillet. Watch carefully. When bubbles appear, turn chapati quickly and watch for bubbles again. Using tongs, hold the chapati over a direct flame from the stove. You can rest the chapati on the burner, but be very quick to turn it. Place the chapati down on the first side that it was cooked on in the skillet. Within a few seconds the chapati will puff up. Quickly turn it over, put on the burner a few seconds and then remove. Butter both sides with the melted butter, using a pastry brush. Cover the chapatis with a clean cloth to keep in the heat.
