We enjoy making this version of chapati. It is very simple and easy to make.
Indian Chapati Bread
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
3/4 cup hot water or as needed
In a large bowl, stir together the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour and salt. Use a wooden spoon to stir in the olive oil and enough water to make a soft dough that is elastic but not too sticky. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until it is smooth. Divide the dough in smaller parts so that you can roll each piece into a ball. after you have divided the dough, let rest for a few minutes.
In the meantime, heat a skillet over medium heat until it is hot, and grease lightly. On a lightly floured surface, use a floured rolling pin to roll out the balls of dough until they are very thin. Somewhat like the thickness of a tortilla. When you notice the pan starting to smoke, place a chapati on it.
Cook the underside of the chapati until it has brown spots, roughly 30 seconds, then flip and cook on the other side. Continue with remaining dough.
