How to make Soft layered chapati

  1. In a bowl, mix flour and salt.

    Add Margarine, mix with hands to form crumbs.

  2. Add water bit by bit as you knead. Knead for atleast 5 mins, if the dough is sticky, add flour bit by bit as you knead.

  3. Continue kneading on your work surface for another 3 mins. (FOR SOFT CHAPATIS, YOU SHOULD KNEAD THOROUGHLY)

  4. Finally dough should be firm but soft and not sticky. Cover with a damp cloth/ cling film/plastic polythene bag for 30 minutes.

  5. After 30mins, knead again and cut into balls.

  6. Roll out the balls in a circular shape with a rolling pin, one at a time and brush with oil.

  7. Cover them to keep them soft.

  8. Roll the balls out again forming the circle.(Layers should be visible on the rolled out dough).

  9. In a medium heat, place your skillet, let it warm up. Then put your chapati on top. Fry both sides until brown. Once cooked remove and place it in a container and cover.

  10. Serve with your favourite stew. Enjoy!

Tips & Tricks

  1. Don't be in such a hurry... Work on your dough thoroughly.

  2. The heat should not be too high nor too low.

  3. The temperature of the water being used to knead doesn't matter.
