Nutrition: per serving



  • 250 g Wholemeal Flour
  • 150 ml Water Warm
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp Oil


  • In a mixing bowl, combine the wholemeal flour and salt.
  • Add the vegetable oil to the flour mixture and rub it in using your fingers.
  • Gradually add the warm water and mix until you have a smooth and pliable dough. If the dough is too dry, add a little more water.
  • Knead the dough for about 5-10 minutes until it’s smooth and elastic.
  • Cover the dough with a damp cloth and leave to rest for 10-15 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into 8-10 equal portions and roll each portion into a ball.
  • Dust the work surface with a little flour and roll each ball into a thin, round chapati shape, about 15-20cm in diameter.
  • Heat a non-stick frying pan, or crepe pan over medium heat.
  • Place one chapati onto the pan and cook for about 30-40 seconds until it starts to puff up and brown spots appear.
  • Flip the chapati over and cook the other side for another 30-40 seconds.
  • Remove the chapati from the pan and keep it warm in a clean tea towel.
  • Repeat the process with the remaining chapatis.
