Easy Chapatis

  • Servings : 8
  • Prep Time : 10m
  • Cook Time : 10m
  • Ready In : 20m


  • 450g / 1 lb wholemeal plain flour
  • 250ml / 9fl oz cold water


Step 1

Set aside 200g / 7 oz of the flour and reserve for shaping the chapatis

Step 2

Place the remaining flour in a bowl. Fill another bowl with the cold water

Step 3

Add the water to the bowl of flour, a little at a time, kneading as you go, until you have a soft, elastic dough. The longer you knead the dough, the softer the chapatis will be.

Step 4

Sprinkle a little of the reserved flour onto a surface or board. Divide the the dough into 8 and shape each piece into a ball.

Step 5

Flatten the balls slightly, then place one onto the floured board. Roll it out into a flat disc approximately 15cm (6inches) in diameter, flouring the board when necessary.

Step 6

Heat a griddle or a shallow frying pan. Lay the chapati on the griddle or pan and cook for about 20-30 seconds or until the surface is bubbling. Turn it over and cook the other side for about 10-15 seconds. As soon as brown spots appear on the authorised, the chapati is done

Step 7

Repeat with the other seven balls, using the remaining flour to roll them out. Stack them up as they are cooked, placing a sheet of kitchen towel between each one to absorb the moisture.
