  • 300g spelt flour
  • 200ml water
  • One teaspoon salt


  • In a large bowl stir together the flour and salt.
  • Add a little bit of water and knead. Keep adding water, very little at a time, as we knead.
  • Knead for 4-5 minutes until you get a soft and smooth dough. Cover it and let it rest for 15-20 minutes.
  • After the dough has rested, divide the dough into small balls about 6-7 cm in diameter.
  • Roll a ball in the flour and flatten it with your hands. Then, with the help of a roller stretch it in a circle leaving in the thickness of 1-2 millimetres. If the dough sticks to the surface, sprinkle a little flour so that it doesn't stick.
  • Heat a frying pan over medium-high flame. Place the Chapati and cook for 30 seconds approximately, flip over, and cook the other side for about 30 seconds.
  • Then flip over again. Take a folded kitchen towel and press gently around the edges of the Chapati, not in the centre. This way the whole bread will be puffed up.
  • Serve them hot with any curry dish. You can also brush a little bit of Ghee (clarified butter) on top before serving.


Tips and tricks:

- To prepare Chapatis with the spelt flour, it is advisable to make the dough a little bit soft. This will make the Chapatis softer.
- To make the kneading process easier, put a little bit of oil on the palms of the hand.
- The balls must be rolled evenly. If we roll them unevenly, they will never puff up when we cook them.
