Chapati Recipe

Chapati Recipe

This chapati recipe is from episode 2 (season 1) of The Fabulous Baker Brothers.

The simplest quickest bread possible to make. The perfect accompaniment to any good curry, we always wait for our guests to arrive and get them to join in with the chapati making.

This chapati recipe is used in our gunpowder lamb recipe or serve them with our quick fish curry recipe.

If you love bread why not try one of our bread boxes and you get to taste a great variety of our handmade bread.

And if you love to bake why not come on one of our bread making courses at our Cookery School in Chipping Sodbury.

Serves 8


  • 260g of wholemeal flour
  • A large pinch of salt
  • 200ml of warm water


  1. Weigh the ingredients into a big bowl and mix together. Knead the really soft dough for a good 15 minutes, or longer if you can. Alternatively, blitz the lot in a food processor. Taste the dough for seasoning and add more salt if it's bland.
  2. Leave the dough to rest back in the bowl for a few moments whilst you dig out a heavy frying pan or flat griddle and get it heating up to smoking.
  3. Divide the dough into eight pieces. With a firm hand, shape them as round as you can. Then roll them out as thin as you can on a well-floured surface.
  4. Cook the chapatis one at a time. Drop them into the hot pan, and using a large pair of tongs give them a spin. Don't let it stick or burn. After 30 seconds, flip it over and slightly scorch the underside. This should also take a minute at most.
  5. Now here's the rewarding bit..... If you're baking on gas, remove the pan from the heat, and using the long tongs, hold the chapatti directly over the flame and it'll blister and puff up.
