How to Make Chapatti

Last week I made homemade chapatti and so happy it worked look in the background as little Jasmine plays with the dough she even rolled a little one. To me this is what valentines is all about cooking a special meal for folks you love :-) 

Unfortunately today I am sick with a cough and fever, my valentines gift is that some kind person is covering hubby's shift so her can stay to help me ;-)

love you all

  1. Oh, goodness Rebecca you are so cute! So is your daughter, but you steal the show ;) Chapatis are made very much like flour tortillas, then! I didn't realize that. How fun!

  2. You are so smart; I have never thought I could do this but...Jasmine is a doll! Hope you are well soon.

  3. I've never had Chapatti and they do look like tortillas. They look like fun to make!

  4. I hope you feel better. Those Chapatis look great. Nice video. Jasmine's adorable.

  5. Aww! What a cute video! Hope you feel better too! =)

  6. It's like a tortilla!! Yum =) I hope you're feeling better soon, my friend.

  7. Great video tutorial! Maybe, I will get the courage to try it:) Jasmine is so adorable!

    Hope you are feeling better soon.

  8. I had never heard of Chapatti - but you make it seem accessible and they look like wonderful. Jasmine will know so much! Happy Valentine's Day, Rebecca. I hope you feel better very soon!

  9. Great video Rebecca! Jasmine is so stinkin' cute. Your chapatti looks amazing!

  10. Nice fun video of making chapatti. Curries looks awesome to go with it.

  11. happy valentine's day! i hope you're feeling better soon!

  12. Do you layer yours and re roll it? We do, then it has flaky layers! I had some yesterday with my client Puneeta with home made pickles her mom makes! Yum, you two are so cute!

  13. You have such a sweet helper. So sorry you are under the weather! I am sure that hubby is taking good care of you.

  14. Rebecca, pretty mum and daughter! Thanks for the tutorial.

  15. Get better quick and hope you had a good Valentine's Day!

  16. I made me smile when I saw little Jasmine helping you out in the kitchen.

    One of my Indian friend showed me how easy was to make chapatti.

  17. It's really wonderful to see a non-Indian write about and Indian thing. Do you love chapatis?

    I hope you get well soon!

  18. hope you get well soon rebecca, very nice video and useful for beginners..

  19. I must make these again, they're so easy and very satisfying to know you've done them yourself. Your daughter looks so cute sitting up on the work top whilst you bustle around!

  20. Awesome tutorial Rebecca! I've always wanted to learn how to make chapattis!

  21. hello Rebecca, my first time on your blog and it was lovely seeing you making chapattis :-). We make & eat chapatti/ roti's 365 days a year and it is our daily bread. I'd like to add a few tips which may help you make them better.. if you are adding yogurt in your chapatti's then you can use milk instead of water while kneading the dough. Also add half a teaspoon of baking powder so it will rise easily and you will not have to make much effort to get them to puff up.

    I dont use either of the ingredients I mentioned in our daily chappati making routine. We just use whole wheat flour, salt and water to make the dough. Roast them on the tawa or griddle and put them direct on the flame. Each one would take not more than a few seconds to cook. We call this a phulka. Very similar to a roti/ chapatti. Chapatti is make with oil and roti is without oil. Though they all belong to the same bread family.

    Dont know if these tips will help you. All the luck.

    I have recently launched a food blog ' Hope you take a peek and share your views on it.
    Hope you get better soon.

    cheers Irin

  22. Well, that's simple enough to make, Rebecca. So cute to watch Jasmine in the background.

    Sorry you're feeling lousy...hope it's nearly over by now, but a fever is NOT good. Take care!

  23. You are right about the smoke in the kitchen! Turn that hood up full blast! I am so impressed you are able to make them so beautiful on a glass top stove. I kept burning the pan oil when I made mine. Great video!

  24. I have not had chapattis in a long while. I like how yours puff up when you were cooking it. Hope you feel better soon. Sending some hugs your way :) BTW, that's a cute apron!

  25. Awesome video! Hope you feel better very soon!

  26. Love this video! Chapatti does seem to be a lot easier to make than I thought! I love seeing Jasmine helping you cook in the background, playing with the flour. What a cute little sous chef you have, haha!

  27. These do remind me a lot of flour tortillas. Now I wonder what it would be like to press the bread down as I am cooking it. Happy belated Valentine's Day! I hope you are well.
