How to Make Chapati
Pour and mix the flours together in a pan. Drizzle a teaspoon of oil over the top and hand mix it in.
Slowly add a bit of water and mix it in. Then add a little more water and mix it in. Kneed the mix and repeat this until the flour turns into the consistency of dough. Leave mixture covered to sit for about 15 minutes.
After the dough has set, separate a chunk and use your hands to roll it into a ball (you can dip the chunk in extra flour so that it won't stick). Then place the ball of dough on a flat surface and roll it out until it is flat and about the size of a medium tortilla.
Heat a flat pan over medium-high heat. Place the flat dough on the already heater pan. After a few seconds, the dough will begin to bubble around the edges. Flip it over and heat the other side. Continue flipping until some air pockets are slightly browned.
With a clean kitchen towel, slightly press the edges of the chapati in a circle until it fully rises. This is how you know it is done. Place the chapati on a plate. You can spread butter over the chapati to keep it soft for longer.
