  • 2 tbsp Oil OR Ghee
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • Lukewarm Water As Required To Knead


  • In a large mixing bowl take flour, 2 tbs oil and salt. Add gradually add ¾ cup and mix with fingers until crumbly.
  • Gradually add more water and bring all flour together to make a dough. Add 1 teaspoon of oil on sides of bowl and knead the dough for 1-2 minutes until the dough holds together. Rest the dough for 10-15 minutes.
  • After resting, knead again for 1-2 minute, the dough will be soft but not at all sticky and very pliable.
  • Oil the rolling pin and board or the flat surface on which you intend to make roti.
  • Divide dough two large portions. Make a big ball of each portion.
  • Place the griddle on the medium flame for heating.
  • From each ball with the help of rolling pin make a circular flat shape. Spread 1 teaspoon oil on it and dust it with whole wheat flour. Now roll the dough to form a log.
  • Divide each log in 9 equal portion. Shape each portion in a round ball and then press the ball to make a flat circular disc.
  • Dust each circular disc with wheat flour, and make circular roti with rolling pin. Use wheat flour to dust as required.
  • Place the roti on hot girdle, flip the roti after 3-4 sec while still undercooked. The other side of roti has to be fully cooked before flipping to the first side. Now, cook the first side of roti completely
  • Take 1 teaspoon oil and smear on of roti after taking it off from griddle/tawa. Follow same instruction with all chapati roti and pile up roti one on top of other. When all rotis are cooked store in a hot pot or in aluminum foil.
    Soft chapati-roti is ready to serve.

For Freezing:

  • Freezing warm roti will give you soft chapati after re-heating. Just put a pile of roti in zip lock bags and freeze. When required, heat frozen roti directly on tawa. And you'll have almost fresh homemade roti. You can use frozen roti up-to 15 days.
