Chapati/Roti/Flattened Bread Recipe

Chapati or roti are flattened bread made out of wheat flour. The thickness of the roti and the size depends on individual preference. The aroma of hot rotis drizzled with ghee is divine!!!


  • 300 gms wheat flour
  • A tsp of salt
  • 3 tsps oil
  • 200 ml hot water
  • Ghee/ clarified butter

Method :
Heat the water enough to handle it. Add the salt, flour and oil and bind a soft dough. Cover it and keep it aside for 15 minutes. The hot water softens the dough. Knead it well. Make 18 balls. Flatten them. Dust them with flour and roll them to six inch diameter discs. Heat a skillet. Place the rolled roti over it and roast it till tiny brown bubbles appear on the surface which is being roasted. Flip. Roast in a similar manner on the other side too. Remove from the skillet and apply a little ghee. Serve hot.

Note :

This measurement yields 18 rotis.
