Recipe: Chapati

Chapati is nice as a quick bread, since it doesn’t heat up the kitchen much. If you want a quicker solution, tortilla chips will do.

Ingredients:

1 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup warm water
2 tsp. oil
1/2 tsp. salt

Instructions:

Place flour in mesh strainer and shake to remove big chunks of bran. Stir in salt. Make well in flour and add water and oil. Mix well and knead for 2-3 minutes. Cover and let stand for 1 hour. Divide dough into 12 pieces. Make each piece into a ball. Roll out to the size of a saucer.

Heat a heavy griddle. Cook each round until brown and puffy, 2-3 minutes each side. Keep warm in a tea towel while cooking remaining bread.
