Serves: 6-8/ Cooking time: 20-30min
500 g whole wheat flour (chapati atta)
250 ml water
1 tsp vegetable oil
1 tsp salt (optional)
How to cook:
In the flour, add salt, oil and mix well. In the flour add water bit by bit while stirring lightly with fingers in a circular motion till the flour start to gather. Add 1-2 tablespoons of more flour if the dough looks too sticky or add little more water if it looks too dry and firm.
Knead the flour until you have a soft and pliable dough that does not stick to your fingers. You can put little oil on your hand while kneading the dough to help with kneading. Cover with a towel and let the dough rest for minimum 15 minute at room temperature. If keeping the dough in the refrigerator and make sure to bring it back to room temperature before using it.
Once ready to make the bread, heat the griddle over medium-high heat you can do it on the non-stick pan if no griddle available. Divide the dough into 12-14 equal-sized balls and start working with each ball separately. Place the bowl in dry flour and flatten it a bit with help of fingertips. Transfer the flatten ball to any clean flat surface and with help of rolling pin, roll it into approx. 6-7 inch circle of uniform thickness. While rolling the flatbread if the dough sticks to the rolling surface, dust it and the surface with little flour.
Place the rolled flatbread on the hot griddle and cook for 30 seconds or until tiny golden dots appear on the bottom, flip over to the other side. Once the other side is also covered with larger brown dots, turn it over again. Soon the flatbread/chapati will start to puff up. With the help of a folded kitchen towel press gently on the puffed part, gently pushing the air to the flatten part of chapati until the whole chapati puffs up into a round ball (don’t get disheartened if your flatbread/chapati doesn’t puff up like a ball, it will still taste as delicious as the puffed on. It may take a little practice to get perfectly puffed flatbread/chapatis). You can puff up the flatbread on direct flame too.
Transfer the cooked flatbread/chapatis to the plate.
