How to Make Soft Chapatis at Home


Whole wheat flour – 3 cups, Hot water, Salt – 1/2 tsp, Cooking oil – 2 tsp


Follow the steps below to knead a soft dough and you’ll be making super soft chapatis like a pro in no time. It won’t take a lot of your time and we promise you’ll make chapatis that look good and are soft.

Step 1 Take the whole wheat flour in a large bowl. Add some salt to it. Then pour a cup of water and knead the dough. Set the dough aside for 30 minutes. You can also substitute the whole wheat flour with multigrain atta if you like.

Step 2 After 30 minutes, take the dough and knead it again on a flat surface. Knead it well for about five minutes.

Step 3 When you knead the dough the second time, don’t add too much water. Add the water sparingly and knead well. Set aside the dough for ten minutes again.

Step 4 Take a small ball from the dough and flatten it on a rolling board using a rolling pin. You can take some flour while rolling the ball if the dough sticks to the board. However, don’t use too much flour as using too much dough makes the chapatis hard.

Step 5 Once you have rolled out the chapati, heat a chapati pan and put the flattened chapati on it. Let it cook well from one side. Flip it. Then place the half-cooked chapati over the flame. The half-cooked side should get cooked completely. You will see it puffing. Once it puffs, take it off the flame and serve hot. Repeat the above steps to make more chapatis or phulkas.

We hope these steps will help you make soft and tasty chapatis. Initially, it might seem hard but once you get the hang of it, you will make soft chapatis and never get tired of making them. So, go ahead and try these steps today.
