Chapati (Flat Bread)

Ingredients

250 g wheat flour
2 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp salt
water for mixing
ghee (or melted butter)

rolling pin or chapati roller

Preparation

Mix flour, oil, and salt, using enough water to make a soft dough.

Knead dough for 5 minutes.

Make a ball the size of a medium lime, and flatten by hand, using some oil.  Spread flour on surface of dough, and repeat hand flattening.

Spread some dry flour on the work surface, and roll chapati out thinly (approx. 6" in diameter).

Fold chapati into quarters. (A shape like a wedge of pie), and roll into a circle again.  This adds lightness to the chapatti.

Cook chapati in an ungreased pan until bubbles and brown spots appear on the surface.  turn occasionally.

Add a small amount of ghee or melted butter to the surface of the cooked chapati.  Cooked chapatis can be stacked.
