Description

Breads often have unexpectedly high amounts of salt. Try this low salt and whole wheat bread that can easily be made at home.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Place the flour in a large mixing bowl. Add water, oil, and salt. Mix with fork and then with hands. Keep mixing until you can make a ball.

  2. Knead the dough for about 10 minutes. Let rest for 30 minutes in the bowl, covered with a damp cloth.

  3. Roll the ball into a 12-inch log and cut into 6 chunks.

  4. Roll each chunk into a very thin pancake, about 7-inches in diameter. Don't worry about making the dough into a perfect circle-just try to get it as thin as you can.

  5. Heat a cast iron skillet (lightly greased) on medium-high heat. Place one chapati in the skillet and cook for 30 seconds.

  6. Use a spatula to lift bread. When chapati gets brown spots and bubbles, flip it over and cook for another 30 seconds.

  7. Wrap the cooked chapati in a cloth napkin while cooking the rest.
