Chapatis (whole grain thin flatbread) — Vegan

Makes 4 chapatis.

1 cup whole grain flour

1/2 tsp himalayan salt

2 tbsp olive oil

Warm water (not hot!)

  1. In a bowl add flour, salt and oil and rub it into the flour until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs.
  2. Gradually add warm water . First add one spoon of water, mix, then add another one and so on. I needed about 3 tbsp.
  3. Form a dough. It should be very soft, but not sticky. If it’s sticky, add more flour. This is very important if you want them to puff.
  4. Cover it and leave it for 30 min.
  5. Then form 4 balls. They should be really round.
  6. Roll one chapati after another. If you don’t know how to do that, I suggest you to check online step by step guide. Make sure that it’s not too thin and especially that it’s rolled evenly! Otherwise it won’t puff.
  7. Bake them in a non — sticking pan. Before you put a chapati in a pan, dust the dry flour. Bake it on one side by gently turning it (pressing it) with a towel until it changes the colour. It takes about 30 s. Flip it around and again gently press it and turn a bit, like before. Until it starts making bubbles. Then put away the pan and put chapati directly on a fire, be careful that you don’t get burned. Leave it for few seconds until it completely puffs.
  8. Put it on a plate, add few drops of olive oil and cover.
