Dough for Chapati in Marathi


1 cup Wheat flour (Chapati Atta)
1 tsp Oil + some more oil
Pinch of salt
Warm water

1) Take 1 cup chapati atta in a mixing bowl. Add 1 tsp oil and pinch of salt. Mix nicely. Then add water little at a time and knead to medium consistency dough. Use little oil, if required.
2) Cover the dough for 10 minutes. Again knead the dough. Divide the dough into 6 to 8 equal portions.

1) Dough consistency should not be too stiff or too soft. Chapati made of stiff dough becomes hard and chewy. Very soft consistency dough is difficult to handle while rolling the chapati.
2) The number of chapatis depend on size and thickness of the chapati.

  2. Can I use butter, instead of oil, and milk, in place of water?

  3. Hello Sivagangai

    You can use milk instead of water.
    Butter can be used to make chapati. However, if you are staying in a cold region, and if you use butter instead of oil, it might create a problem. because after chapatis become cold, butter will solidify due to cold weather.and chapatis won't remain soft, it might break.

  4. Hi Vaidehi,

    Nicely explained.

    Could you please translate Mandira's tip.
    Did not understand.


  5. Thanks Deepa

    Mandira's tip:-
    Add 125 grams of Soyabean and some toovar dal (with skin) to 5 kgs of Wheat when you send it to the flour-mill to make atta. It will make the flour healthy (because of soybean) and flavorful (because of toovar dal)

  6. Thanks Vaidehi and also Mandira for the tip! :-)

  7. Shall I use surabhi atta for making chapati.
