How to Make traditional Indian roti or chapatis
In this video, Anuttama shows the user how to make chapatis (also called roti). Chapatis are a type of northern Indian flat bread (a type of flour tortilla) that can turn out to be delicious, fun, and easy to make! The ingredients you will need are wheat, flour, salt, and water. You can use whole wheat flour mixed with white flour (Anuttama suggests about 50/50) or you can a special chipati flower. Every mixture will require flexibility, so start with salt then add your water until you get the consistency you desire. The idea is to make a dough that is slightly sticky. Continue to knead for at least 5 minutes before you're ready to cook. Watch the rest of the video for instructions on how to prepare each piece of bread to be cooked in the pan.
