Chapati

Christ is risen!

recipe from Jenny:

Chapati Bread is an unleavened Indian flatbread. We like it with Indian-flavored dishes, like the Masoor Dal recipe posted previously.

Chapati

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1/2 to 3/4 cup warm water

In medium bowl, combine flours, salt, oil, and enough water to form a soft dough. Knead the dough ten times, then cover tightly and let stand for 1 hour.

When ready to cook, form 10 balls from the dough. Roll out the balls on a lightly floured surface into 6" circles.

Heat an ungreased griddle over medium high heat. Two at a time, lay the circles on the hot griddle.

Cook until the dough starts to puff slightly, then turn and cook until light golden brown spots form.

Remove chapati to a kitchen towel and brush with melted butter. Serves 4-6
