How to make chapati (Phulka) ?

Chapati (Phulka)

Ingredients :
1 cup whole wheat flour (or 1/3 white + 2/3 wheat)
1/2 cup water

Method :
Put flour in a large bowl with half the water
Blend the two together until it holds.
Beat and knead well until it forms a compact ball.
Knead dough into it is smooth and elastic.
Set aside for 25 minutes.
Knead and divide dough into 4 to 5 parts
Roll each ball into a tortilla like flat, about 1/7" thick.
Heat an ungreased skillet.
Put phulka on it and let cook for about 1 minute.
Turn and cook the second side for 2/3 minute till small bubbles form.
Turn again and cook the first side pressed lightly with a towel.
It should puff. Serve warm (slightly buttered).

As the rolled out chappatis will dry out if they are left stand while cooking other, it is advantageous to roll them out individually before cooking them.

Hey, I made these this afternoon and they turned out nice. The only varition I made was adding a little salt to the dough and brushed them with a little olive oil while they cooked.

Thanks for the recipe. Just wondered if i can use normal flour instead of wheat flour to save going back out into the christmas mayhem. Cheers
