Ingredients

Buckwheat Chapati

  • 2 cups buckwheat flour
  • 4tsp olive oil
  • 2/3 cups water
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil (optional)

Method

  • Place the flour in a flat bowl. Make a whole in the middle.
    Add the water and the oil and start folding the flour in from the sides with a spoon.
    Mix the dough up until it becomes crumby.
    Use your fingers to work the water into the mixture - a dough will start to form.
    Knead the dough into a ball, cover with a dash of olive oil and let it rest for 1 hour.
    After 1 hour, divide the dough into 10/12 balls.
    Role out each ball until it is 3 to 4 mm thin. Take care not to tear the dough.
    To cook the chapati place it on a heated pan only once on each side before any brown spots form.
    Then place the chapati onto an open flame from the burner for a few seconds on each side. It will puff up almost instantly.
    Remove from the flame and coat with coconut oil.
