Chapathi with Terrace Grown Brijnal Bhaji/Chutney 

  •  Wheat Flour - 1 cup
  • Oil- 2 tsp  
  • Water as needed to prepare the soft dough 
  • Salt to Tate 
  • Ghee as required to roast 

In a bowl add the wheat flour, salt, ,oil  , water n knead to a soft dough .. keep aside for about 20 mts . 

Divide the dough into equal lemon sized balls .

Sprinkle little flour on the dry surface kitchen platform or a wooden chapthi maker n place the dough ball over it n roll with a rolling pin very gently n not too hard  to a round 5 inch disc . 

Heat a tawa n place the chapathi over it. Cook on one side for half minute and flip on the second side. Cook for another half minute and smear some oil  on one side. Now flip this ghee  side onto the tawa. Now you will see the chapathi fluffing . Similarly add ghee on the second side and fry both sides till chapathi is completely cooked and brown spots appear on it.  Move each edge to middle of the tawa and cook so that all the edges are evenly cooked.
