Chapati is one of our favorite dish for breakfast, lunch and dinner, it is much more healthier to eat chapati to rice which is very high in carbohydrate. Every family and every cook have their own recipe for soft chapati, now let me share my version of it.


2 cups of whole wheat flour/ atta
2 tbsp of butter
1 tbsp of oil

In a bowl, add flour and butter then mix well, now add in water and knead the flour to form a soft textured chapati dough. It takes approximately 1 cup of water for to get the perfect consistency of the dough. I do not add any salt to the dough because I have added butter. Once done apply the oil to the dough so that it doesn't dry and cover with cloth.

Divide dough into equal small balls and roll into nice round shaped chapati

Toast the rolled dough on a griddle

Flip to the other side and make sure both sides are toasted well, press the 
chapati with a clean cloth so that the chapati will be puffed

Now our chapati is ready to be served, I have served my chapati with sardine peratal
