Soft Chapati :

Take a big bowl add 2 cups of wheat flour, 2 table spoons of curd, salt and 1/2 spoon of baking powder. Mix it nicely and keep the dough for 20 minutes.

Now prepare small balls, roll them and prepare chaptis.






Server them with Bombay Saag.

Note : Add water little by little and prepare the dough, since already curd in it the dough will not take much water. The chapati dough should be normal chapati consistency. Since we have used wheat 20 minutes is more than enough to get the soft dough. Adding oil is purely optional.
