10 chapatis


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ¾ cup hot water or as needed

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Mix flours and salt in a large bowl. Use a wooden spoon to stir in water and olive oil. Mix until a soft, elastic dough forms and add more water, if needed. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth.

  2. Divide dough into 10 equal portions, or less if you want larger chapatis. Roll each piece into a ball and let rest for a few minutes.

  3. Heat a lightly greased skillet over medium heat.

  4. Use a rolling pin to roll dough balls out on a lightly floured surface until very thin, like a tortilla.

  5. When the skillet starts to smoke, place a chapati in it. Cook until bottom has brown spots, about 30 seconds, then flip and cook 30 seconds more. Repeat to cook remaining chapatis.
