3 cups of All Purpose Flour (not self-rising)
1 ½ cups of warm water
1 tsp of salt
1 tsp of sugar
Step 1. In a bowl, measure three cups of flour.
Step 2. In another bowl, mix salt, sugar, 2 tablespoons of oil and 1 cup of water. Stir until the salt and sugar dissolves.
Step 3. Pour the liquid mixture above (step 2) in the flour bowl and mix well. Keep adding the remaining water until the dough becomes soft.
Step 4. Knead the dough for five minutes and add flour if needed.
Step 5. Transfer the dough on a flat surface and continue kneading and adding flour when needed for 10 minutes. Add more flour to make it thicker, but not too hard.
Step 6. Return the ready chapati dough in a bowl, add some oil and knead to mix it up until it is soft and not sticky. Cover the dough and leave it for 40 minutes.
Step 7. After the 40 minutes, divide the dough into 10 to 13 equal parts making a ball like shapes. Arrange them on a flat surface dusted with flour.
Step 8. Right away, pick one of the balls and place it on a flat surface.
Step 9. With a rolling pin, roll the ball to a circular shape.
Step 10. Brush the circular Chapati with oil on top.
Step 11. At the side that faces you, start folding and rolling the oiled chapati with both hands as if you are rolling a rode away from your direction.
Step 12. Once you have a shape that looks like a rope, create a coil-like a shape.
Step 13. Make a coiled ball and with your palm, press the ball down to make it flat.
Step 14. Next, with a rolling pin make a circular shape again.
Step 15. In a hot pan, place the rolled out circular Chapati and fry each side until it’s golden brown on medium heat.
(Repeat step 8 to 15 until you finish the rest chapati dough balls). Put your cooked chapati in plastic wrap or container and cover.
Serve after 20 minutes.
