Chapati also known as Roti is a flat bread that is often served with curry.

What You’ll Need - Makes 8-10 Chapati

  • 2 Cups All Purpose Flour (and more for kneading and shaping)

  • 100g Butter

  • Salt

  • 1.5 Cups Hot Water

Prep Time: 20 Minutes

  • Add salt to the flour in a large bowl.

  • Melt the butter and add half of it to the hot water. Leave the rest for later.

  • Add the water in halves into the flour and combine. Once all the water has been incorporated into the water, tip over onto a floured surface.

  • Flour your hands and knead the dough until smooth.

  • Divide the dough into half. Divide each half into 5 equal parts.

  • Form the dough pieces into balls by rubbing them in between your palms in a circular motion. (Make sure your hands are floured at all times)

  • Take each ball and roll it out with a rolling pin into a circle. Repeat this for all the dough pieces. Sprinkle Flour generously onto of each circle before putting another one on top of it so they don’t stick.
