DIRECTIONS

  • Add the water to the flour a little at a time, kneading as you go until you have a soft, elastic dough.
  • Sprinkle a little flour onto a flat surface or board.
  • Divide the dough into 8 and shape each piece into ball.
  • Flatten the balls slightly then place one on the floured surface and roll out into a flat disc approximately 15cm/6inches in diameter.
  • Repeat with the other 7.
  • Heat a shallow frying pan.
  • Lay a disc onto the hot pan and leave for 20 to 30 seconds until the surface is bubbly.
  • Flip over and cook the other side for 10 to 15 seconds.
  • As soon as brown spots appear on the underside it is done.
  • Repeat with the other breads.
  • Cooks tip: The longer you knead the chapati dough the softer the breads will be.
