How to make Chapati...

This is my first post on this blog...

Lets get started with chapathi

Chapathi is the very best healthest food... And most of the persons think that its so hard to make it... But the making of soft chapathi is easier as like eating them...Follow the simple steps below to make soft, delicious chapatis...

All you need is:

  • 2 1/2 Cups Whole Wheat flour
  • 1 cup Lukewarm Water
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tbsps of oil(any oil)/ Ghee


  1. Put the 2 cup of wheat flour into a bowl, add 1 cup of Lukewarm water and mix until crumbly.
  2. Add 2 tbsps of oil or ghee and stir
  3. Add the remaining flour slowly, and stirring until its combined
  4. Knead the dough for 2 minutes
  5. And place the dough in a bowl and cover it for 20 mins... If u dont cover then the chapathi ll get harder...
  6. Divide the dough like a lomen sized pieces...
  7. Roll the dough with a rolling pin until the balls resemble thin, round pancakes.
  8. Heat a toasting pan, and cook the chapati for 5 seconds and turn other side and cook it until blisers appear on it...
  9. Remove the chapati from the griddle with a pair of metal tongs, place it over a low direct gas flame or electric coil, the chapati should puff up into a ball almost immediately...

Thats it your going to have a soft chapathi...

Tips: If the chapati does not puff up, there may have been a small hole in the dough or the dough may not have been kneaded enough. If the chapati does not puff up after 30 seconds, remove the chapati from the fire or else it may burn.
