How to make soft chapatis

How to make Chapati which has many layers and is so soft that you can eat it by making pieces with just three fingers? Here are the tips.
  • Prepare the atta at least half an hour before you prepare the chapatis. The more the merrier.
  • Knead the atta well with both hands at least for 5-6 minutes.
  • While rolling each chapati, first roll into a circle, apply some oil and dry atta powder and fold, and then    again apply some more oil and atta and fold into a triangle.
  • We generally apply oil but if we add dry atta, it helps in turning the chapatis into multiple layers.
  • Always cook chapatis on high heat taking care to change the sides.
  • Put the cooked chapatis in the vessel in such a way that the hot and fresh one always goes below the earlier chapatis.
  • Serve hot with mixed vegetable curry, stuffed brinjal curry or vegetable makhanwala.
Happy Cooking :-)
