This is an excellent recipe for chapatis, except I don't care to have the ghee/shortening brushed on it after grilling. I tried one like that, then skipped doing it for the rest. We also adore stuffed chapati so I added methi (fenugreek leaves) and sliced chillies to the dough, which gives it extra flavor without changing the outcome of the chapatis. I do recommend the griddle be almost smoking hot since it should only grill briefly, until it puffs, which it should do almost immediately. Oh, and I also didn't need that last 30 minutes of rest time, since I kept the dough nicely warm while it rested for the first hour. Thanks for sharing-

I have been into trying many things differently as of late. Sometimes it is great and sometimes not so much. I thought this was pretty good but kinda different from what we were used to. I don't think we will keep making this regularly. I think this is a recipe many people will love but some will only like a little. Thanks for the recipe.

Very good taste, even with such a simple ingredient list. I admit, I let my ABM knead the dough. Madhur Jaffrey says people keep the little balls kept damp in the refrigerator and use them as needed. So I made one for a test, and will see how the refrigerated chapati (I covered each layer of balls with a damp paper towel) works tomorrow. I'm not used to rolling out dough, so please excuse my practice chapati (it still tasted fine.) Made for The Wild Bunch for ZWT8 Family Picks.

I must admit I was a little nervous to make this recipe as I had never tried my hand at a flatbread before. It was so simple and easy though, I'm glad I tried it. I'll never buy Chapati again! It went great with the Kheema I made for dinner and my family was suitably impressed with the warm home made Chapati. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT 8 :)

These went well with the Indian meal I prepared. They were easier than I thought. Messy to mix, (By hand), but with both rest times, it made rolling them easier. Thank You. Made for ZWT8.

This recipe was prepared as written. These are very good chapatis. Try to use ghee for the best buttery flavor. A great addition to an Indian meal. Made for ZWT8
