Served warm and fresh, chapatis complement a spicy curry and a cool yogurt dip.They are also delicious with rice and bean dishes.
Ingredients

– 2½ c. whole wheat flour.
– 2 tbsp. butter or margarine.
– 1 tsp. salt.
– 1 c. lukewarm water.

Instructions

Step 1: Put 2 c. flour into a large mixing bowl.
Step 2:Cut butter into small pieces. Make a hollow in the center of the flour and add butter. Rub butter into flour with your fingertips until mixture looks like large bread crumbs.
Step 3:Mix salt into water. Add enough water, a little at a time, to flour mixture to make a firm (but not stiff) dough.
Step 4:Knead dough in bowl for about 5 or 10 minutes. Cover bowl with a damp cloth and let stand at room temperature for at least 1 hour.
Step 5:Divide dough into pieces about the size of walnuts. Roll each piece into a smooth ball with your hands.
Step 6:Sprinkle remaining ½ c. flour onto a flat surface. With a rolling pin, roll out each ball until it resembles a thin pancake, about ⅛-inch thick.
