Recipe for family meals :

Chapatis is a professionally run web site for professionals but there is plenty of interest in there for everyone interested in cooking. You will find many great recipes to try, some fascinating chef biographies and much, much more.

Run by Chris and Sharon Nakos, is designed to provide the food and restaurant industry with a direct way to showcase their establishments for maximum exposure.


2 1/2 cups (10 oz / 300 g) whole-wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup (8 fl oz / 250 ml) warm water
Cooking spray

  • In the bowl of a food processor fitted with a dough blade, process flour, salt and water until the mixture forms a ball.
  • Turn dough onto a floured work surface and knead for 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Let dough rest for 30 to 90 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 200ºF (95ºC).
  • Divide dough into 8 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a 7-inch (18-cm) circle.
  • Spray a cast-iron griddle or skillet once with cooking spray and set over medium-low heat. Cook a chapati for 1 minute. Turn over and cook 5 minutes on second side or until chapati bubbles up. Flip back to first side and cook for 5 minutes. Then place the cooked chapati over the open flame (or on the coils) of a separate burner for a few seconds to brown, as you would a tortilla. Keep cooked chapatis warm in the oven while you cook the remaining dough.
  • If you prefer a crispy, cracker-like texture, increase oven temperature to 350ºF (175ºC). Bake cooked chapatis, on a pizza stone if possible, until crispy, about 10 minutes.
