Just 4 ingredients is all you need to make delicious flatbread at home. Serve with dip at your next gathering or as a side to dinner.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2/3 cup water (warm)
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 dash salt

Directions

1. Place the flour in a large mixing bowl. Add water, oil, and salt. Mix with fork and then with hands. Keep mixing until you can make a ball.

2. Knead the dough for about 10 minutes. Let rest for 30 minutes in the bowl, covered with a damp cloth.

3. Roll the ball into a 12-inch log and cut into 6 chunks.

4. Roll each chunk into a very thin pancake, about 7-inches in diameter. Don't worry about making the dough into a perfect circle-just try to get it as thin as you can.

5. Heat a cast iron skillet (lightly greased) on medium-high heat. Place one chapati in the skillet and cook for 30 seconds.

6. Use a spatula to lift bread. When chapati gets brown spots and bubbles, flip it over and cook for another 30 seconds.

7. Wrap the cooked chapati in a cloth napkin while cooking the rest.

8. Eat them right away with a little butter or margarine, or use as scoops for eating other dishes.

We used half all-purpose and half whole wheat flours, and everyone really liked it.
Can also be made with jiffy in a pinch and its awesome. We like to serve it with chicken alfredo.
