Chapatti, Indian flat bread
This chapatti flat bread recipe is very easy to make. You can use it as a replacement for a wrap in lunches or makes a great bread for dips.

100 wholemeal flour


1 tbsp olive oil

3 tbsp water

In a bowl, sift the flour and a pinch of salt together.

Mix in the olive oil and water until it forms a dough. Knead until smooth and elastic. This will take about 8-10 minutes.

Divide dough into even balls. Use a rolling pin along with a dusting of flour if needed, to roll out as flat as possible.

Heat a heavy based frying pan over a medium heat. You do not need to add any oil or butter.

Fry the dough disks for 1 minute each side.

Serve when you wish or wrap into individual portions for the kid’s lunchboxes.
