Soft Chapatis

These are similar to the steamed wheat rotis made by Namratha of Finger licking food blog for the Powerless Cooking Event. However I followed Mallika Badrinath's recipe for the same.


2 cups wheat flour
Salt to taste
1 1/2 cups water
1 tsp oil

Boil the water and add salt and oil. Add the wheat flour to it and mix well. Switch off the gas and knead the dough well.

Roll out into chapatis and cook on a hot tava. These chapatis are ultra soft and ideal for travelling or lunch boxes. No need to apply ghee over it too.

I gave these a try tonight for dinner and they are really soft and good! I had a bit of trouble rolling them out and getting them stuck to the counter... but I imagine with some practice I will get better at that. I will definitely try these again!
