Wholemeal Chapati Bread

    12 minutes

    This is a version of the Indian bread made from wholemeal flour. I make this for my husband all the time - he's diabetic.

    1. Sift together flour and salt in a bowl. Stir in olive oil and water, and then knead until firm and elastic. Divide into four balls, and roll as flat as possible with a rolling pin.
    2. Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook the chapati on both sides until golden brown, about 1 minute per side. If desired, sprinkle with additional olive oil before serving.

    I am having trouble making these perfect. I followed the recipe but my bread turn out hard and I couldn't roll it round like the picture provided. It doesn't puff up as well. What did I do wrong?  -  12 Jan 2015


    These are so quick and easy, and I often make a similar recipe but with refined flour, and I often cook the chapattis on a hot barbecue. Never thought to use wholemeal flour, but it is good - very tasty and just that bit better for you. Country Frog  -  15 Jul 2013


    Awesome recipe! I'm a health nut but love junk food, so I use this recipe to make chips. I roll them out real thin, slice them up with a pizza roller, brush them with olive oil, then bake them 425 untill they are golden. Everyone loves them, even my not-so-health-nut boyfriend.  -  19 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
