Meals are vital at any time of year, but especially so during the holiday season. Numerous people throughout the country like making chapatis. Despite Kenyans' affection for chapatis, only a select few individuals in the country are capable of manufacturing beautiful, soft, and delicious chapatis. As a result, many Kenyans find it tough at times and prefer to pay a specialist to do it for them.

Today's essay will demonstrate how to avoid a critical blunder when making chapatis. As a result, wherever possible, avoid adding warm water to your ingredients. The following reasons for excluding warm water from your homemade chapatis preparations:

Chapati becomes more rigid rather than more malleable.

I'm aware that you've been preparing the soft chapati with warm water, but they've stiffened. As a result, if you've been using warm water, this could account for the chapatis's hardness. Always use warm water to create a soft chapatis. As much as possible, avoid using heat.

You're squandering a large amount of flour.

Adding warm water to the chapati components may, in my opinion, be the explanation for your excessive wheat flour waste. As a result, if you want to prevent generating this waste, avoid using warm water.

You can't cook in an instant.

If you're short on time, you may prefer to immediately begin rolling and cooking after you've completed kneading. However, using the term "warm" is a critical error, as the dough cannot be cooked immediately after kneading. This means that you should give it some time to rest.

Finding it tough to knead

is the most crucial part of the chapati preparation process. Obviously, when warm water is used, the dough becomes tough. If the dough is tough to knead, the chapatis will definitely be difficult to knead. In my opinion, use cold water.
