  1. 1 cup all-purpose flour
  2. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  3. 1 cup water
  4. 1 tablespoon oil



  1. Sift the all-purpose flour and salt in a 3-quart bowl. Blend in 1 cup of water to make a fairly stiff dough. Knead it thoroughly with the fingertips.
  2. Roll the dough into a round circle on a floured board.
  3. Brush the surface of the dough with oil and make an incision from the center of the circle to the edge. Roll this pastry into a cone. Press both edges in and form it into a ball.
  4. Brush with oil and repeat this process twice more.
  5. Divide the pastry into 1-ounce balls and roll each with a rolling pin into a thin 5- to 6-inch circle.
  6. Heat a small frying pan or skillet.
  7. Place 1 tablespoon oil in pan and fry each round of chapatis separately on both sides until golden brown, adding oil as required.
  8. Serve for breakfast, tea, or with entrées as a bread.
