Prep Time: 5 min
Cook Time: 15 min
350 g Whole Wheat Flour
1 Teaspoon of salt
205 mL Water
Mix the flour and the salt very well together.
205 mL of water is added. A rollable dough is obtained.
Spread some whole wheat flour on the table to prevent the dough from sticking to the table.
The dough is divided into 10 more or less equal portions.
All portions are rolled into small "pancakes" (Note that only 2 of them are shown here).
The "pancakes" are folded towards the middle from 4 corners.
All folded portions are again rolled into "pancakes" and again folded in the same previous way.
All folded portions are again rolled out into "pancakes" with the desired size nd shape of the final indian bread.
Put a "pancake" on a hot & dry pan.
Flip the "pancake" over once it becomes light brown on the cooked side.
Apply a very thin layer of olive oil on the light brown side with a brush or a piece of tissue.
When the other side becomes light brown too, add the same amount of olive oil on that side too, using the same method.
Flip it over and keep it at that position for 20 seconds, and then the chapati is ready.
Fold the bread twice such that it is divided in quarters.
Lightly slam the folded bread with the back of your hand.
Place the folded bread in a bowl, the insides of which are covered by a piece of cloth.
Cover the bread with the cloth to keep it warm.
Now repeat the same process with the remaining "pancakes".
