  • In a mixing bowl, place the atta flour, salt, and water.
  • Mix well and knead for 10 minutes. Cover with a clean tea towel that is damp and leave to rest for 5 minutes.
  • Knead for another 2 minutes, until the dough is smooth.
  • Divide the dough into 3 parts, and divide each part into 5 evenly sized balls.
  • Dust your work surface with atta flour and roll each ball into a thin circle that is 8-10cm in diameter.
  • Place a skillet or tawa over high heat and cook each dough circle for 15-20 seconds, until it starts to bubble. Flip the dough over and cook for another 10-15 seconds.
  • Pick up the chapati with metal tongs and hold the bread over an open gas flame. Turn the bread over when it begins to puff, ensuring it doesn't burn.
  • The bread can be served immediately or cooled then stored in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
  • Optional: Brush the chapati bread with ghee after removing from the heat and serve warm.
