Chapatis Flatbread

Ingredients

2 cup whole-wheat flour
2/3 cup warm water
2 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 pinch salt

Preparation 

  1. Wash hands with soap and water.

  2. Place the flour in a large mixing bowl. Add water, oil, and salt. Mix with fork and then with hands. Keep mixing until you can make a ball.

  3. Knead the dough for about 10 minutes. Let rest for 30 minutes in the bowl, covered with a damp cloth. Roll the ball into a 12-inch log and cut into 6 chunks.

  4. Roll each chunk into a very thin pancake, about 7-inches in diameter. Don't worry about making the dough into a perfect circle-just try to get it as thin as you can.

  5. Heat a cast iron skillet (lightly greased) on medium-high heat. Place one chapati in the skillet and cook for 30 seconds.

  6. Use a spatula to lift bread. When chapati gets brown spots and bubbles, flip it over and cook for another 30 seconds.

  7. Wrap the cooked chapati in a cloth napkin while cooking the rest.

  8. Eat them right away with a little butter or margarine, or use as scoops for eating other dishes.
