Chapatis are one of the most common forms in which wheat, the staple of northern south asia, is consumed. Chapati is a form of 'Roti" or bread. The words are quite often used interchangeably. While roti refers to any flat unleavened bread, chapati is the word used to describe a roti made of whole wheat flour and cooked on a 'tava' or flat skillet


Whole wheat flour -1 cup
salt -1/2 tsp
Milk -1/2 cup(i use warm milk for making dough it makes my chapathi much softer)
Oil -1 tsp


1.Mix wheat flour,salt,milk and oil in a bowl and make like a firm butnot stiff dough.Knead the dough for atleast 10 minutes(kneading the dough makes ur chapathi lighter).Cover and keep it aside for 1 hour.
2.Take small portion of the dough, dip them in the wheat flour and roll out it into circular shape using rolling pin.
3.Heat the skillet on medium flame then place the rolled out chapathis on the skillet.Turn over when u see the bubbles and cook till dark spots are visible(alternatively partly cook the chapathis on the skillet and put them on the highflame,it makes chapathi to blow up)

  Now chapathi is ready for serving.Enjoy it with kurma.Please post ur comments on this recipe.
