Indian Chapati Bread


1 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 cup water

Chapati bread is an unleavened wheat bread in round, flat rolls. They are traditionally served with hot, spicy foods as an alternative to rice. Indians use them for wrapping round and picking up pieces of food.

  • Mix the flour, salt and water together to form a dough.
  • Knead well until it becomes soft and pliant.
  • Set aside in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  • Divide mixture into 10 pieces and roll out into thin circles.
  • Lightly grease a frying pan and heat using medium high heat.
  • Cook the chapatis one at a time until the surface begins to bubble and turn brown.
  • Turn over and cook the other side.
  • Store the chapatis on top of each other until the mixture is used up and the meal is about to be served.
