Chapathi has become an unavoidable item on Keralites' dining tables. Most people here have mastered the art of making the perfect chapathi dough. Here are some amazing tips to make super soft chapathis and rotis.
You could poke the dough using your fingers to check whether it has the right consistency. The dough would sink and not resist if it has a soft texture.
The dough should be mixed well for at least ten minutes using your palms. Mixer too could be used.
The dough should be covered using a soft wet cloth for at least 20 minutes to retain the moisture.
All the sides should have the same thickness while rolling.
Dust off excess flour before cooking the chapathi.
Pre heat the pan in which chapathi is cooked; it should be cooked on medium flame.
Rub some ghee or olive oil on top of the cooked chapathis to retain its softness.
Add some more flour and mix well if the dough is too loose.
Meanwhile, add 1 tbsp water and mix again if the dough is too tight.
Constant practice is the only secret to make perfectly round chapathis. You could also cut the rolled dough using a round lid with sharp edges.
