Throw Everything into One Pot

Fresh natural food for busy people

Chapati is unleavened Indian flat bread. The same bread was eaten by the patriarchs in Biblical times. Avraam asked Sarah to make chapatis when three angels visited him (Gen 18:6). Can be made in a short time when you are out of bread and shops are closed. Despite its simplicity, chapatis can compete in taste with the best European breads.

6 breads

1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup water

Put flour into a mixing bowl. Mix with salt. Make a depression in the center and gradually stir in water. Cover and leave for 30 minutes in a warm place.

Knead the dough on a floured surface until smooth and elastic. Divide it into 6 balls and flatten with a rolling pin on a floured surface to form thin pancakes.

Heat a nonstick skillet until a drop of water dances on the surface. Cook chapatis one at a time, for about 1 minute on each side, till brown spots appear and bread begins to puff up.

Serve hot.
