  • 3 cups whole wheat flour (aatta)
  • 1/4 cup yogurt
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Lukewarm water as needed


  • Combine the flour, salt and yogurt in a large bowl.
  • Add water little by little and bring the dough together.
  • Knead the dough till it becomes soft and pliable.
  • Divide into 10 to 12 balls.
  • Flatter one balls after dusting some flour, making sure that there are round and equal thickness all over.
  • Heat a large pan. Flip the chapathi onto the hot pan. Cook till boils appear and then flip.
  • Once it cooks till small brown spots appear, flip and cook till done. If you wish to make phulkas, flip directly onto the flame and just cook till the dough fluffs up.
  • Repeat with the rest of the dough balls. Store in the hotpot till ready to serve.


It is best to enjoy these chapathis while still hot.
