The following items are needed for making soft chapatis:
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 salty teaspoon
ghee or oil, 1 tbsp
1/4 cup warm water
Salt and whole wheat flour should be combined in a sizable mixing bowl. Be sure to thoroughly combine.
When the mixture resembles breadcrumbs, include the oil or ghee.
Add the warm water gradually to the ingredients and stir while kneading until the dough is soft and smooth. Dough shouldn't be too dry or overly sticky.
The dough should be covered and rested for at least 30 minutes. This encourages the dough to loosen up and soften.
After the dough has rested, give it another brief kneading. Make equal-sized balls out of the dough.
Each ball should be floured before being rolled into a 6- to 8-inch-diameter circle. Ensure that the center is thicker and the edges are thinner.
On medium-high heat, preheat a flat griddle or tawa. On the heated tawa, place the rolled-out chapati and cook for about 30 seconds.
Cook for a further 30 seconds after flipping the chapati. To ensure that the chapati cooks evenly, gently press on the edges.
Once more, flip the chapati, and cook it for 30 more seconds, or until it puffs up. From the tawa, remove, and keep warm.
For the remaining dough balls, repeat the procedure.
The dough should be mixed with warm water. The gluten in the flour is activated as a result, making the dough more elastic.
Let the dough at least 30 minutes to rest. This facilitates the relaxation of the gluten and facilitates the handling of the dough.
The chapatis should be cooked on a flat griddle, or tawa. This guarantees consistent cooking and promotes chapati puffing.
The chapatis can be served right away or heated in a closed container.
In conclusion, it is simple and easy to make soft chapatis. You can make soft and delicious chapatis that will surprise your family and friends by following these straightforward instructions. These tender chapatis are perfect for wrapping up food or serving with sauces.
