Today We learn how to make a soft and fluffy chapathi.. It is one of the most important basic needs of the indian cooking.. Chapathis is a flat bread made with whole wheat flour.. While we cook the food the important for us to know the correct method of perparation of the food.. 


  • Use enough water (i use warm water) to make soft and pliable dough..
  • Too hard tight dough will make it difficult to roll.. and chapathi will be hard.
  • You can prepare the dough in correct form..
  • Resting dough for 20 - 30 mins to make a soft chapathi.
  • Knead the dough well with your knuckles before making balls..

  • While rolling the circles, remember to roll the side thinner than the centre..
  • This helps in puffing up the chapathi while cooking..
  • Maintain the heat medium, where your chapathi to puffs up and get light brown spots..
