an indian friend, in india, was able to make chapatis and parathas, filled with potato or other ingredients, totally, by hand. no using a rolling pin. it was very clever, but as you say, takes a lot of practice.

Faye its not easy to..make.

It might crumble the first time you make...it.

Talking from...experience.



Pour the maize...flower.

Add water...slowly.

Add a tiny bit of...salt.


Roll it out about...10 cm.

Then you don't...tap

it from hand to...hand.

You have to move it around with...both

hands like a wheel until...its

the size you want...it.


I believe the sun should never set upon an argument.
I believe forgiveness is the key to your unhappiness.

i can make chapatis by hand, myself but try putting some oil with the mix. might be less dry.

i cook mine under the grill, these days and they puff up, but still not the same pliable chapatis, like in india.
