For the Chakki Chapattis

1. Pour flour in a large bowl with a well in the centre and add a small amount of the water and work the dough gently, until you get a crumbly breadcrumb texture.

Optional: Add the yoghurt and mix the flour thoroughly until you have a moist and pliable dough mass that does not stick to your hands.

2. Knead the well using small, tight folds for 10 minutes until the mixture is smooth, firm and elastic. If the dough is too hard it will make not make soft chapattis.

3. Form the dough into a compact ball. Wrap in cling film and set aside for at least 30 minutes at room temperature.

4. Make individual balls the size of golf balls.

5. Flatten the individual balls into a circular shape with your hand and dip both sides into the flour container.

6. Scatter a little flour onto a rolling surface and using a rolling pin, roll the dough outwards into a circular shape about 1/8″ thick, turning it over as required.

7. Heat a griddle/tawa on a high heat for a couple of minutes and then turn down to a medium heat. A dry non-stick frying pan can also be used.

8. Place the rolled chapatti on the griddle and allow cooking for about 30 seconds. Turn and cook the second side for a minute until small brown bubbles form. Turn over once again and lightly press with a clean tea towel or place onto the flame until the chapatti fills with air.

9. Remove the delicious fresh chapatti from the griddle and brush with butter/olive oil if desired.
