Chapati (East African Bread)

Time: 1 hrs


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cooking oil
  • warm water, as needed


  • 1 All ingredients should be allowed to come to room temperature if they have been in the refrigerator.
  • 2 Mix flour and salt in a bowl.
  • 3 Slowly mix in enough water to make a thick dough.
  • 4 Mix in one spoonful oil.
  • 5 Knead dough on a cool surface for a few minutes, adding a few spoonfuls of dry flour.
  • 6 Return dough to the bowl, cover with a clean cloth, and let it rest for thirty minutes.
  • 7 Lightly grease (with cooking oil) and pre-heat a skillet or griddle.
  • 8 Divide the dough into orange-sized balls. Flatten them into six-inch circles. Fry them in the skillet or griddle, turning once, until each side is golden brown and spotted.
  • 9 Place in warm oven as they are done and serve with butter and any curry, stew or soup dish.
