Most people complain about chapatis not being soft, some blame it on the flour, others on the temperature of the water being used, others swear by hot water. I decided to give a step by step guidance on how to hack a soft layer chapati.
1)3 cups all purpose flour
2)2 tablespoon margarine
3)1 table spoon sugar
4)11/2 cups of warm water
5)Oil for cooking
1)In a bowl mix flour, sugar and salt. Add margarine mix with hands to form crumbs,I use a little bit of sugar in mine because I love savoury taste. Omit it,if you don't like it.
2) Make a well and pour water bit by bit as you kneed.
3) Continue kneading on your work surface for another 3 minutes.
4)Finally dough should be firm but soft and not sticky.
5) After 30 minutes,knead again and cut into balls.
6)Roll out the balls in a circular shape with a rolling pin, one at time.
7)In a medium heat, place your skillet let it warm up. Then put your chapati on top,fry both sides until brown.
8) Serve with your favorite stew or even tea.
