Prep Time 10 Minutes Cooking Time 10 Minutes

Ingredients
220g whole wheat flour
200g all-purpose flour
1 Teaspoon Salt
Hot water as required
Method
In a large bowl stir together the whole wheat flour all-purpose flour and salt.
Use a wooden spoon to stir in the olive oil and enough water to make soft dough.
Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until it is smooth.
Divide into 10 parts or less if you want bigger breads.
Roll each piece into a ball.
Let rest for a few minutes.
Heat a skillet over medium heat until hot and grease lightly.
On a lightly floured surface use a floured rolling pin to roll out the balls of dough until very thin like a tortilla.
When the pan starts smoking put a chapati on it.
Cook until the underside has brown spots about 30 seconds then flip and cook on the other side.
Continue with remaining dough.
