Chapatti (or Chapati) Recipe
you can make pancakes, you can make this chapatti. There are only six
ingredients and the process is simple. Serve them hot with butter, honey,
jam, or cinnamon and sugar or plain as a complement to a main dish.
1 cup stone ground
whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
3/4 cup water
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Preheat a griddle
or frying pan until it’s very hot. We used an electric griddle
set on 400 degrees. Do not grease the griddle.
1. Mix the flours,
salt, and sugar together in the bowl of your stand-type mixer.
2. Add the water and oil. Mix with a dough hook for six to eight minutes
or until the gluten is formed. You may need to add a bit more flour
or a dribble of water to get the consistency of bread dough.
3. Divide the dough ball into ten or twelve pieces. Roll one into a
thin disc as if you were making a tortilla. Place it on the hot griddle.
After a minute, turn it over then remove it to a hot plate. Continue
with the other pieces.
4. As the breads come off the griddle, microwave them for ten to fifteen

notes: If the griddle is hot enough, you should have
browned spots on the bread. Do not overcook the breads. Overcooked breads
will be crisp and dry instead of soft and chewy. The moisture in the
bread creates the steam that puffs the bread.
While we could
never get enough steam to make the breads as puffy as those in a restaurant,
these were still good.
