Chapati, also known as roti, rotli, safati, shabaati, phulka and roshi, is an unleavened flatbread originating from the Indian subcontinent and staple in India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, East Africa, Arabian Peninsula and the Caribbean.

We can't resist a warm chapati with our favourite curry. Praveen shares his Chapati recipe below: 


250g Whole wheat flour .
30ml Water


Place the above ingredients in a mixing bowl. Add water to make a soft,
but not sticky dough. Add a little more flour if dough is sticky or water if
dough is hard. Knead gently until smooth.

Divide the dough into equal pieces and roll each one into a thin circle
about the thickness of a 20 pence coin (2mm/1/16 in), using a rolling pin.

Heat the thick base pan. Place the rolled chapatti on to the pan. Cook it
until they are brown both sides, finish on open flame
