Wheat(Chappathi/roti/Paratha) Dough


Wheat flour - 1 cup
Curd - 2 tsp
Salt -1/2 tsp or as per need
Water - 1/2 cup
Oil - 1 tsp


1. Add curd and salt to the wheat flour and mix well. Curd makes dough soft.
2. Add water little by little and knead the dough.
3. Finally add oil and knead the dough once again. This is to avoid dryness of dough.
3. Let it for min 45 mins and max 1 hour or more. This helps to get a soft, spongy chappathi/roti.


For me chappathi/roti will always be like rubber sheet until i learn this technique. You can use this dough for making poori also. Stuffed chappathi/roti is called as paratha. Its different from parota. Soon i'll post varieties of parota.
