Next step keep kneading for ten minutes and add flour if needed until the dough becomes non sticky. Add two to three tablespoon of oil and continue kneading until the oil mixes well and the dough is soft. Cover the dough for about 40 minutes.

Next, start rolling each of the coil like shape doughs with the rolling pin to form a circular shape chapati.
