Recipe of Chapati (Poli)

Ingredient Name Quantity Unit
Wheat Flour 2 Cup
Salt 1/2 Teaspoons
Oil 1 Teaspoons
Warm Water To Taste


1. Mix flour, salt and oil.

2. Add warm water and keep mixing with hands to form a soft, pliable dough. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let stand for at least 20 minutes.

3. Knead the dough again using some oil. Make small balls of 2 inch diameter out of this dough.

4. Heat a griddle first on high heat. Once hot, turn the heat to medium.

5. Spread some wheat flour or rice flour on the rolling board. Place the ball on the board. Roll each ball with a rolling pin into thin circles. Apply rice flour or wheat flour to make the rolling easier.

6. Put on the hot griddle and roast one side. When the bubbles begin to form on the bottom side, immediately flip over.

7. Similarly roast the other side. Remove from the griddle and pat it to make fluffy.

8. Top with ghee and serve with any curry or pickle.
