makes about 10 - 8" diameter chappatis. Serving size is 1

To make dough
Mix all the dry ingredients well. Make a well in the center and add water a little at a time and knead well for about 8-10 min until all the dry ingredients come together cleanly to form a soft yet stiff and pliable dough. The dough will keep in the frig for about 2-3 days.

To make chappati:
Heat a non-stick griddle to about medium-hot.
Take a small ball about the size of a small lemon or a large lime.
Place it on a clean kitchen counter top or a wooden cutting board and roll it out evenly into a circle using your rolling pin. Use dry flour as often as required to prevent the dough sticking to the pin.
When the round is thin (as thin as a thick sheet of paper) and even, remove it from the board and place it on a hot griddle.
After a minute or so, you'll see bubbles forming underneath the chappati. At this point, drizzle a few drops of oil, spread it with a spoon to cover the chappati and flip it over. Repeat.
Using a spatula prompt the chappti to fluff up evenly.
The chappati is done when there are brown spots spread evenly on both sides.
Remove from heat and serve it hot.
