Transcript:How to Make ChapatiHi, I'm Natasha Levitan for About.com Food. Today I'm going to show you how to make chapati.
Chapati IngredientsFor this recipe, you will need:
- 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup water
- 3 tablespoons oil
- a folded dry cloth
Prepare the Chapati DoughAdd salt to your whole wheat flour and mix with a wooden paddle. Make a depression in the center, and slowly add water in small portions while mixing it well with the flour, until you have smooth dough.
Roll the Chapati DoughOil your hands and knead the dough for five minutes. Divide the dough into 10-12 equal pieces. Form the pieces of dough into balls by rolling them in your hands.
Roll each piece of dough by pushing the rolling pin from the center of the dough out to the edges. Do this until you have a circle 4 inches in diameter.
Cook the ChapatiPlace your skillet on the burner and turn the heat to medium. Place rounds one at a time, flour side down, on the skillet.
Cook for 1-2 minutes, or until the surface begins to bubble. Turn the chapati over on the other side, and cook for 1-2 minutes longer.
Serve the ChapatiThen, press the surface with a dry cloth to make the chapati puff up. Brush them with melted butter and serve.
