Diwali Chappatis

A part of Indian cuisine, a chapati is an unleavened bread that is made using chapati flour, or wholewheat flour.



100 g wholewheat or chapattis flour
4 tablespoons of cold water
1 tbsp vegetable oil or ghee


Put the flour in a bowl and make a well. Add the oil. Gradually mix in the water until a soft, but not sticky dough is formed ( add a little more flour or water if needed ).

Knead for about 10 minutes and leave to rest in the fridge for 30 – 60 minutes. Divide the mixture into 6 balls. Roll into very thin rounds with a little flour.

Heat a frying pan or tava. When the pan is hot place a chapatti in the pan. When bubbles appear, turn and cook the other side. Serve warm.
