Homemade Chapati


Serves: 3 hungry bellies

This was so easy to make even on our first attempt so we had to share! Perfect served with a tasty curry..

Prep time: 5minutes

Cook time: 3 minutes



• Plain flour
• Wholemeal flour
• Olive oil
• Water



• Mix together an equal amount of plain and Wholemeal flour depending on the amount of chapatis you want
• A large tbsp of each flour will yield about 3 medium size chapati
• Mix in a drop of olive oil then a spoonful of water at a time mixing with your hands to form a spongy but not sticky dough
• Add more flour if it gets too sticky, add more water if it’s too floury
• Mould into balls
• Heat a pan (lightly grease if you wish, I think it works better without as long as it’s non stick)
• Roll balls into flat shapes on a lightly floured surface until desired thickness achieved
• Place into hot pan for around 30 seconds each side or until brown spots appear
• Serve hot or cold and enjoy!

• Alternatively when rolling out the dough cut into desired shapes with shape cutters
