Chapatti (Flat Bread)

The recipe for today is Chapatti. This is really easy to make. Its even a little fun, but then again, I love to cook. This bread only has 3 ingredients. I'm thinking about trying something with this recipe. I'll let you know if I come up with something good. Well here you go.

*Chapatti (Flat Bread*

Servings: 8

2 1/8 Cups Whole Wheat Flour, Or Flour Of Choice
2 Tsp. Salt
1 Cup Warm Water

Mix the flour and the salt in a medium bowl. Make a well in the middle and add water. Mix until you can gather dough into a ball. Add more water if needed. Turn out onto floured surface and kneed for about 8-10 minutes. Cover with plastic (so it don't get dry) for about 30 minutes to 2 hours. Divide dough into eight balls and flatten each ball into an 8" round, using a rolling pin. Don't turn the chapatti round over to the other side when rolling them out.Don't stack the uncooked rounds on top of each other and keep each round covered in plastic. Heat on tava or a cast iron griddle or skillet on medium heat. When griddle is hot, place a chapatti round on griddle top side down. Cook for 10 seconds, gently flip over. Cook on the other side for about one minute. Turn chapatti back to the other side and cook for one minute longer. At this time the chapatti should start to balloon. You can help the bubble along by gently pressing the bubble.Use a cloth or paper towel, wadded up to protect your fingers from burning. Remove chapatti when it is browned a little. Its OK if it has some darker spots. Each one will have its own design on it. Place each one on top of the other and keep them warm in a towel. I have a tortilla warmer that will keep them warm. you can eat these any way you like.

Sounds like something I'll have to try! I'm thinking they might be good with chopped green onions, a little butter, some sour cream . . . yummy!
