How to Make Chapatis


Chapatis (Indian flatbread) are the perfect accompaniment to most Indian dishes. Learn how to make them with this step-by-step photo tutorial on making Chapatis. Don't be fooled by the number of steps there are in this tutorial because making a single Chapati from start to finish, takes 1 1/2 to 2 minutes at the most! Chapatis are not difficult to make but the old saying "Practice makes perfect" was probably written for them.

All you need is:

  • 2 cups wholewheat flour
  • Water (Using yoghurt or milk will give you super soft Chapatis! See tip below)
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tbsps vegetable/ canola/ sunflower cooking oil
This recipe makes roughly 12 Chapatis.
