500 gm atta flour
2 tbsp melted butter or oil
1 tsp salt
about 1 1/2 cup water
Put atta flour in a bowl and add in salt to mix.....then rub in melted butter. Add water to make a soft dough. Knead for about 10 to 15 min....the more you knead the lighter the bread. When the dough is soft ...make into a round ball and put into a plastic bag to stand for 2 to 3 hours. Divide the dough into small round balls. (Flatten the balls with rolling pin and roll into thin flat circular shape. Then heat a heavy pan or griddle and lightly grease it with oil using a kitchen towel dip in oil. Place chapati on it and cook for a minute and turn over the other side to cook til bubbles and brown flecks appears on the surface.).......As for my chapati maker i do not have to use a rolling pin....i just put the balls on the heated griddle and press down the lid to flatten ....while it cooks...wonderful isn't it....?
The rounded small balls before i flatten it in my chapati griddle....
The chapati when pressed ...looks like this.
When cooked it looks like this................
I will write about my dhal curry in my next posting....
