Chapati is a type of roti made in East Africa, North India, and Western India. You can find my recipe below. Enjoy! =)


- 3 cups of flour
- 2 tsp of sugar
- 1 tsp of salt
- 1 cup of lukewarm water

Making the dough:

* Pour the flour, water, sugar, and salt into a bowl and begin to mix with your hand.
* Keep on mixing until it turns into a dough- like form.
* Mix for about 5-10 minutes (depending on your speed) until the dough sticks to itself and no longer sticks to your fingers.
*Divide the dough in 4-6 pieces.
*Flatten each piece out using a rolling pin until desired shape is formed.

*Heat up a non-stick frying pan and grease it using either olive oil or butter.
*When the pan is hot enough (you can test it by throwing drops of water on it), place one chapati on the pan
*Wait around one minute (or longer depending on preference) and turn it around, giving each side equal exposure to the heat.
*Pour drops of olive oil or butter on the top, then flip it over.
*When the bottom is crisp or golden brown, you may take it off or keep it longer if you prefer a crispier chapati.

Let me know how it turns out :D

  1. Hey sis, asalaamu alaikum! I made this chapati tonight, along with an Ethiopian stew and my hubby LOVED it! The first piece I made wasn't that great, I think because I didn't roll the dough out thin enough, but the pieces got better as I went along. I will definitely make this again :D
