Yield: 6 chapatis
This is an Indian flatbread that goes well with soups and curries.
- 2 cups whole-wheat flour Add to list
- 1 cup warm water Add to list
- 1/4 teaspoon salt Add to list
- 2 tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil Add to list
For an individual chapati
Combine flour, water and salt. Mix to make a soft dough. Add in the oil and mix a little more.
Divide the dough into 6 small balls. Let the dough rest for 15 minutes. Using a rolling pin on a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough into a flat 10-inch circle, like a tortilla.
Bring a heavy frying pan to medium-high heat. Place a chapati in the pan and cook until the bottom side is lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook the other side. Serve hot or cold.
