Chapathi Dough

Makes - ~ 9 chapathis/rotis

Measurements & Ingredients:

  • Whole Wheat flour - 3 cups
  • Salt - 1/2 tsp
  • Water - 1.5 cups
  • Oil (optional) - 1tsp

 Mix salt and the dry flour well.  Start adding water in little quantities and start mixing the dough.  Initially it will be sticky.  Add enough water to make a dough, but not a sticky one. 
 At the end you get a sticky dough if you add too much much.  So watch out when you add water.  When you feel you are getting a consistency to make a firm ball, stop adding water and knead well to make a smooth, firm yet soft ball.

Smear it with oil(this step is optional).  Keep it covered in a container with a tight lid.  Let it sit for about 2 hrs so that the dough soaks well and the chapathis will be soft.
