Delicious Chapattis

There is this lovely children home for abandoned babies where I volunteer during the weekend and I have met so many volunteers who come from different corners of the globe to do volunteer work and most of them reside there for a month or more and so when we are introduced and we get to know each other there is one question that I can’t resist asking and that is how they like the food there and what never fails to satisfy most people is the chapatti.

So I would like you to make them and let me know how you like them.

What you need:

1kg white wheat flour.
2 cups of warm water.
A teaspoonful of salt.
½ a cup cooking oil
A medium size bowl
A large pan.
Bread knife

How to make the Chapattis.

• In the bowl mix in the flour and salt thoroughly and dig a well in the middle and pour in the warm water as you move clockwise to make soft dough. It should be the consistency that can be formed in balls but not too hard or too runny like that of the pancake.
• Shape the dough like a big ball and cover the bowl with foil and let it rest for an hour.
• After one hour, remove foil and divide the dough into palmful shaped ball.
• Using the rolling pin on the rolling board roll out the ball into a pie crust shape(Circular)
• Using the knife, cut the rolled out dough ¾ way in the middle and using a spoon apply the cooking oil evenly and roll it and push it to make a ball.
• Once you have done that to all the balls, you are now ready to start cooking your chapattis
• Roll out the first ball you applied the cooking oil to first into a circular pie like shape.
• Put the pan on the fire and let it warm up and moderate the heat.
• Put the rolled out chapatti on the pan and keep turning it until it turns brown on one side then flip it to brown the other side.
• After you flip it put a spoonful of cooking oil on the brown side and let it cook for a minute then flip it and do the same on the other side.
• When it’s all browned up and smelling very delicious, remove and put in a bowl with a cover so that the steam can soften them further.
• Give the same treatment to all the others.

Now you have made the famous chapattis and you can eat with your tea or make a stew to eat with.

Chapattis can keep for three days in room temperature without going bad if you don’t expose them to water.

Once you have made this first chapatti, you can go ahead by adding other ingredients in the flour like grated carrots, cooked pumpkin, and coriander to make more diverse varieties.
