Roti / Chapati

Ingredients:

Wheat Flour – 2 cups
Salt – ½ tsp
Oil – 6 tbsp (to prepare dough)
Boiled Milk – 25 ml

Cooking Instructions:


Add wheat flour, salt, oil and milk and knead the flour gently. Add water to the flour gradually to prepare a firm and soft dough. Knead the dough well for a while so that the dough will become too soft. The dough should not be too hard. Cover the dough with a wet muslin cloth or a plate and set it aside for an hour and it helps to prepare soft chapatis.



Divide the dough into equal lemon size balls. Dip each ball in the dry wheat flour and roll it out into round shape {about 5 to 6 inches} with a rolling pin using flour to avoid sticking.

Place a tawa on the stove and let it to heat well. Put a rolled chapatti on the tawa, pour a teaspoon of oil around the edges of chapatti and let it to fry well. When u see bubbles forming on the top, turn the chapatti to its other side and let it to cook well. Npw again turn the chapati to the cooked side and let it fry for few seconds and remove from the tawa. Now hot chapattis are ready to serve.



If you want to make ur kids to eat chapati, here is a tip. Roll ou the chapati dough in different shapes, which your kids love and cook it and serve them. They will eat themselves and finish their plate soon. Here i have prepared a cat and fish chapati for my son. He really enjoyed it.
